My mother was constantly the one who wanted to beautify the world.
The grass had to be evenly trimmed all over the property.
She had her elderberry bushes sited perfectly, so she could picked every berry off the bush. She had her lilac bushes surrounding the yard to block out the traffic. They were sited with precision plus had she put heads on them, you would think they were soldiers standing in a row. They were perfectly laid out plus trimmed. When dad put central a/c into the house, she was anxious that the AC component interfered with her landscape. She didn’t love the method that all of her strenuous labor was being marred by the ugly AC unit. Dad asked her if she wasn’t the one who wanted a/c in our home plus she said yes. He told her that along with a/c, there was going to be some changes. One of the changes, plus an obstacle, was the outdoor AC unit. She had to put up with it or have the a/c go away. I could see she thought about losing the a/c, even though she finally succumbed plus told him she wanted the a/c. A couple months later, she had flowers plus bushes planted all around the a/c. She had obtained a book that told her how to take care of the a/c unit. When dad told her about the plants, she told him that there was nowhere in the book that said she couldn’t plant near the a/c. She had made a path between the a/c plus the row of bushes. It had plenty of air space plus you could get back to it easily, even though she no longer had to look at it.
