Miss. Maudie's real love is for her flowers. The garden is her home. Thus, the place she sleeps is secondary.
“Always wanted a smaller house, Jem Finch. Gives me more yard. Just think, I’ll
have more room for my azaleas now!”
“You ain’t grievin‘, Miss Maudie?” I asked, surprised. Atticus said her house was
nearly all she had.
“Grieving, child? Why, I hated that old cow barn. Thought of settin‘ fire to it a
hundred times myself, except they’d lock me up.”
“Don’t you worry about me, Jean Louise Finch. There are ways of doing things
you don’t know about. Why, I’ll build me a little house and take me a couple of
roomers and—gracious, I’ll have the finest yard in Alabama. Those
Bellingraths’ll look plain puny when I get started!”
