People are crying up the rich and variegated plumage of the peacock, and he is himself blushing at the sight of his ugly feet. – Saadi

George knelt in the grass, glad for the knee pads Patty bought him last year. He listened to Beck on the car radio, letting his mind wander back to 1989 while he planted the annuals. He handled each baby plant gently, the dieffenbachia, the variegated ivy, the golden euonymus, and finally, the red impatiens with variegated foliage. As he placed each one in a hole in the dark dirt, he thought about Patty and how he can never get his hands on her anymore, with her impatience, and her variegated heart.
