Quandary Resolution 1787
boscage, haggle, flippant, hobbledehoy
Shayana sat on a bench in sunshine and enjoyed the lovely atmosphere of the park, with children playing everywhere, and dogs and laughter, and thought how lovely summer is, then as a sound attracted her attention, a sound one hears when something is uprooted, she turned her eyes towards the source of sound and noticed a juniper boscage with weeds growing up through it, and she thought them to look like wild clowns, the way hobbledehoys, giving flippant answers to subtle questions, look among those blessed with eloquence, and smiled, and then she noticed the Dollar weed in front of them looking as if trying to spread through the bright, green blades of St. Augustine grass, and looking at them it seemed to her that they were haggling with the new gardener, without any success though, as one by one he was uprooting them.
