Would you provide reproducible code because form your example it looks
like you are trying to label a scatterplot with just two lables - this
is your boxplot from yesterday?  If so look into the ?boxplot and it
will tell you some answers

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
