The [garden] consultant arrived on time. She was neatly dressed and carefully made-up; her hair looked newly coiffed. She looked spiffy, meticulous and careful. We are collector/accumulators and I could see the shock on her face as she walked into the kitchen, where every wall is hung with cups, gadgets, utensils and advertising materials we deem amusing. "How do you dust?" she asked. (This question is the litmus test for our guests; they either get it or they don't.)Things go downhill from there.
