A wealthy eccentric bought a house in a neighborhood I know. Â The house was surrounded by a beautiful display of grass, plants, and flowers, and it was shaded by a huge old avocado tree.Â But the grass required cutting, the flowers needed tending, and the man wanted more sun.Â So he cut the whole lot down and covered the yard with asphalt.Â After all it was his property and he was not fond of plants. (Hill 1983: 98).
