High Office

Not sure the extent to which high office applies to gardeners. It doesn't take much to dig a hole, plant something or turn a Compost Pile. A little empathy, perhaps, but otherwise we're not talking years of training, even if we are talking many, many more years of practice, heartbreak, physical exhaustion, injury and disappointment, all of which may contribute.

But the idea of for example sitting in the emergency ward struggling with something like a burst appendix in the hope that someone who might have received something like a lifetime achievement Oscar for playing the role of a magical aunt on the television might relieve you of your appendix, shouldn't make any sense.
