Janie has romantic ideas about love which baffles her Nanny. Logan, Janie's husband, seems ideal because he has sixty acres of land. Nanny's perspective is based on her childhood as a slave. In her experience, owning land is a privilege reserved for whites, so a black man who owns it is immediately worthy of love. But Janie is a sensual women who grew up in nature and learned about sex and love from sitting underneath a pear tree and watching the bees spread pollen. Land is not enough to fulfill her desires and make Janie happy in her marriage.
