‘Gardening is not a rational act’ (Margaret Atwood, Canadian poet, novelist, literary critic, essayist, and environmental activist)

Evading definition: Property, land, gardening: see e.g.

propertyn. anything that is owned by a person or entity. Property is divided into two types: "real property" which is any interest in land, real estate, growing plants or the improvements on it, and "personal property" (sometimes called "personalty") which is everything else. "Common property" is ownership by more than one person of the same possession … (http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/property

Land: ‘[mass noun] the part of the earth’s surface that is not covered by water … ‘an area of ground, especially in terms of its ownership or use’… and ‘(the land) ground or soil used as a basis for agriculture’ http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/land

  • ‘The "bundle of rights" concept of property denies any fixed meaning to the term property and deemphasizes the importance of the thing with regard to which the rights are claimed. In the bundle metaphor, each right, power, privilege, or duty is but one stick in an aggregate bundle that constitutes a property relationship (A. Bell and G. Parchomovsky, 90 Cornell L. Rev. 531 2004-2005, 545).
