No indeed, there's a new eruption that's affected the Watson household, with 'erindoors declaring that she won't be setting foot on deck if I decide to go ahead with my plans that were casually brought up in conversation last night.
And I'm not talking about the Eyjafjallajökull eruption either.
I thought it was perfectly reasonable, now that I have ordered made-to-measure planters from Barry of Saffron Walden, that I should become concerned about the practicalities of daily plant-watering, and that my solution would be to use artificial plants - which are really quite life-like these days.
Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather. The room went deathly quiet. The atmosphere could have been cut with a knife.
"Artificial plants!!??!!", my wife shouted. "Yes, it's a great idea, and it would save having to carry water to the boat every day", I reasoned. But maybe I'm wrong. I'm so confused.
Who is right? Artificial or Real? You decide. I'll democratically go with popular opinion. Please advise your vote.
