I loved the marine metaphor employed by Jeffrey, and now that he is hiding behind a plotted PLANT, I was wondering if we could continue the tradition and employ a horticultural lexicon to describe the events of the novel so far:
Harriet: Has had a heart transPLANT: Robert Martin weeded out, Mr Elton imPLANTed. But there's a case of severe organ rejection, and could there be hope she would survive another transplant?
Emma: The flower of Highbury society is being supPLANTed by the creeper bride Mrs E. Will the weed win or will the rose?
Mr Woodhouse: The potted plant of course! This homeplant is very averse to travel, and wilts at the first sign of snow or draught.
Mr Elton: His heart does not find fertile ground to germinate in HartFIELD, but thinks Harriet is a weed. Finds the Bath foliage very attractive.
Mr Suckling's seat: has an extensive PLANTation on it ;)
Jane Fairfax and Frank Churchill: the two seedlings uprooted from their native soil and re-planted in foreign climes. Lets see how their native air suits them now.
Miss Bates: the perennial talker. Her monologues are an overgrown garden full of weeds as well as orchids, and will an observant and fanciful gardener succeed in determining which is which?
Any more germane ideas?
