From The Farmer to The Florist



Dearest Ms Picklin'

I have been to Stamford. I have overheard such talk.

"Greengrocer, do you have strawberries that are a less vulgar shade of red?"

"I have been searching everywhere to find a cucumber to match my Fired Earth tablecloth."

Oh that Mother Nature possessed your Farrow & Ball paint chart.

I am a simple farmer. It is not for me to question matters as subjective as colour. I grow what I can and sell the bits that the slugs haven't eaten.

Yours

Mr Naylor Jnr

Well now....Mr. Naylor seems unable to grow more of the color that sells well and less of the color that doesn't. I am new to this blog so I may have missed something or simply don't understand since I am from the US, but I thought you just wanted more of the color that the customers say they want. Hummm. Maybe more flower sales that way?

Not being new to the blog, I know we will listen to and accept the wisdom and flowers of Mr. Naylor.

I think there is only one way to solve this dispute (although secretly we are all fans of blush here) and that there is only person who could solve this dilemma (Jack Bauer style)

What would the hound do?
