Look at it. Just look at it.

It looks like a lovely home to me.

Come on.

Stay close.

Come, come, come.

Oh! What's that? I don't know.

- Did you see someone?

- No.

Here. Take a look.

Oh! What delicate "rosa borso."

But at this time of year?

After the first frost?

It's bizarre!


It's as if summer never

ended around here. Oh!


If you don't know what it is,

you don't know what it will do.

- Martha, it's a flower.

- Yes, one of her flowers...

And if there's one thing I know

about Miss Cassie Nightingale it's:

- one never knows.

- Oh, stop fretting.

This is the perfect setting for

the Bicentennial celebration.

But it's such an important event.

Why celebrate the town's traditions with

the most untraditional woman in town?

Because her house is 200

years old. It's a landmark.

And the woman obviously has a green

thumb. Huh. Probably green all over.

Like the Wicked Witch of the West.

Oh no!

- Did you hear that?

- Sounded like a banshee.

- Get real. There's no such thing.

- Really, Cassie?

Well, maybe it was Mother Nature yawning

in preparation for a long winter's nap.

I could use a nap myself.

You better take a break, grandpa.

I wish Mother Nature would stop blowing

back all the leaves we just raked up.

She blew quite a few up

against the back fence.

Why not pile all your leaves there,

and build a mountain to jump into?

Well, I'm just about ready

to throw in the trowel.

It's no wonder, George. We

haven't eaten since noon.

You want a bite?

What's that?

It's tonight's salad. Organic.

I'm not much for rabbit food.

- Oh, the rabbits wouldn't touch my garden.

- Why not?

We have an understanding.

- Oh, you do?

- Yeah,

everyone is welcome to visit my garden,

but I made the rabbits

promise, no munching.

You've made a wonderful home here, Cassie.

Thank you.

That's why I'm digging extra deep today.

So the roots really take hold.

I've found my one true home here, George.

I can finally say,

this is where I belong.

Ms. Tinsdale.

Good afternoon, Ms. Tinsdale.

- Well, that's debatable.

- Can I help you?

No. This is a matter that needs to be

investigated by your Chief of Police.

It concerns Miss Cassie Nightingale.

Go ahead, Martha.

I was standing outside Grey House,

minding my own business, when the monster

seized my ankle.

- Cassie grabbed your ankle?

- What?

No. It was her creeper.

- Her what?

- A vine. A vine on the ground, that creeps!

That's a very unusual plant.

She has a garden full of freakish plants.

Some of which I suspect may be illegal.

Well, sounds to me like

you tripped on a root.

We can't have her hosting

the opening night gala

of our Bicentennial if

the grounds are unsafe.

I insist that you fully investigate

what she's growing in there.

- If you insist, Martha.

- I do.

The citizens of Middleton

are entitled to a full report.

Out of my way!

Jeepers creepers.

Cassandra Nightingale?

Guilty, Officer.

I'm conducting an investigation.


Looking good.

Well, thank you.

Your kids, George and I have

been gardening all afternoon.

I wasn't talking about the

garden, but that looks good too.


- Hey, Dad.

- Hey, kids.

Something wrong, Brandon?

Um, yeah. I just skinned

my elbow, that's all.

Let me see that.

I have just the thing.

Essence of aloe.

There. Good to go.


- Bye, Dad.

- Bye.

- Bye.

- Bye.

- See you tomorrow, Cassie.

- Bye.

Thanks for the five dollars.

You want a cup of tea, Jake?

Cassie, Martha Tinsdale claims that

she was attacked by one of your plants.

Oh, really? One of the creepers?

I know that the plant
