Did I mention that the above exchange took place in England? Have you seen Gardener's World?
Anyway, this post is just to let Bossy McColeslaw know that his comment was blatantly unfair and is wholly unsubstantiated by the facts. With regard to the suggestion that Canada is boring: Duh. Clearly untrue cuz I come from there. So it's not been boring since at least the late seventies.
But McColeslaw's insinuation that the Netherlands is boring is also totally unfounded. Indeed, just this morning the national news included a very exciting item on the Netherland's oldest milk-producing cow. Here's she is, "Anna 49," surrounded by gift-bearing well-wishers and wearing a crown of flowers (handy because edible) to mark the auspicious occassion of her twentieth birthday:

Now yes, I have noticed that Anna 49 looks a little perturbed. Maybe it's because someone has put cow food on her head. Maybe it's because that statue totally makes her look fat. Maybe she had planned a quiet birthday and now she finds herself stuck at a surprise barn party she never wanted with a bunch of two-legged meat-eaters. Hard to say, really. All I know is when I look at Anna's subtly threatening expression I like to think she's saying "Look here McColeslaw, some pretty frickin' awesome stuff is happening here today and guess who's missing it? YOU are. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA."
