From Gardening Don'ts (1913) by M.C. 08

DON’T say to those who
come to see your garden:
‘Ah, you should have been
here last week; I have never
seen such a blaze of colour.
Now, of course, everything is
over ;’ or (knowing they are
just going abroad), ‘If you
could only come in a fort-
night’s time, I should really
have something lovely to
show you.’
