Little Edie: Mother, we really must do something about all this gray. It’s just not a good look for the day.
Big Edie: Don’t be silly. It’s Grey Gardens.
Little: Now, Mother, that’s not what I mean. I know you’re very particular. Maybe just a window box to add some complementary green during the winter?
Big: Are you going to do that? You’re not going to do that.
Little: No, Mother. We’ll call Sacred Spaces. Gardner Gretchen Champoux will design a charming window box for any space with low-maintenance silvery hellebore, leafy heuchera marmalade, wintergreen — maybe some bergenia, heather, or lavender. Perfect for Seattle’s dark months.
Big: But we’re in the Hamptons.
Little: Champoux comes to you in an old Ford pickup.
Big: Edie, is your head scarf too tight?
Little: We’d simply be crazy not to, Mother.
