Lucy (din0bot) | 2 comments I wish I had more to add, but I forget this book completely. I read it in my school library in the 90's... probably 95-98, or as late as 2002 but no later.

Could be a kind of "England fantasy novel" (like alice-in-wonderland or narnia) about a young child at a big manor house with a simple but kind gardener...maybe? The only thing I am certain of is the quote in the title said by a gardener, and the likelihood that I was reading fantasty or scifi.

I thought the quote came from "Three Lives to Live" by Anne Lindbergh, but I just read that story and it does not. Any ideas?!!!

Thank you greatly - I am hoping to track down this book for my sister, since we still laugh together about "saving the roses" whenever we overheard "behoves."
