Sleep, Creep, Leap, or Weep!

Talking with a neighbor, the neighbor who created Marash Girl's "borrowed landscape", Marash Girl made mention of the perennial garden she has begun in the front of her house (an effort at saving Marash Boy from having to cut the grass!)  

When Marash Girl expressed concern that the plants seemed to be "standing still", our neighbor quoted the apocryphal wisdom of perennial gardeners:  "You know what they say about perennial plants:  The first year they sleep, the next year they creep, the third year they leap!"  Marash Girl, the perennial doubter, asked, "And what if they don't?"  "Then," her neighbor answered, "You weep!"
