Purse pack

tags: , , , ,

Not a wallet so full that it’s packed. A purse is a handbag. A pack is a package. A package made to fit in a handbag. I am still learning words here in the USA and still using old world words in the wrong place

Wendy called my yard a garden!” a colleague gleefully announced. What’s the difference between a yard and a garden in the USA? She had plants carefully placed, a rocketry that would have impressed the knights that say “Ni”, ┬áit was sculpted, not just a space with a boundary measured in feet and yards.

    What might that be when it is in a yard? (sorry, a garden)

    In America, “garden” is used almost exclusively for an exposed dirt bed, without a centerpiece tree, for growing flowers or vegetables only. The exception is for collections of statues, topiaries, or arranged shrubberies.

    The expanse of grass near a house is called a “lawn”, regardless of size, and is divided into “front yard”, “side yard(s)”, and “back yard”.
