Storyline

Lucy has fully acclimated to her new suburban life with her green thumb and beautiful garden. She enters Westport's garden contest and is in direct competition with her new neighbor and friend, Betty Ramsey. Betty is amused at Lucy's efforts, but tells her that it's inconceivable that Lucy could win first prize. Infuriated at her smug attitude, Lucy and Betty get into a dust up. More arguing ensues when Ricky fails to mow the lawn and goes off to a baseball game. Lucy tries to use the Ramsey's power lawn mower and winds up 'mowing every lawn halfway' between her home and the main street of town. Worse, she has ruined Betty's garden and replaces her tulips with waxed ones. Ricky, contrite at what he's failed to do for his wife, agrees to finish the lawn at twilight and, without her knowing it, Lucy's tulip bed is very similar to Betty's. All comes to light the next day, in front of a panel of judges, under a very hot Connecticut sun. Written by gaelicguy
