Congratulations to lyricist Jeanne Plank! A much better breed of
doggerel than most. ("Doggerel" not to be taken pejoratively here.) On a

Griff Crump, along the tidal Potomac, with most of this year's new
plantings sitting snug and well-groomed under pine straw, and waiting
for a break in the weather to finish the rest. Unusually cold and wet
this fall. Oaks have shed their leaves completely, whereas they often
hang around through January.
