A Man and His Trowel



Back in Elizabeth Park.  The tulip bulbs have been removed from the annual garden, new soil has been added to several beds, and they are ready for re-planting.  Here is the first bed to receive its summer plants.

I love the perspective down the rows. I really enjoy gardening here and there, but that looks awfully tedious. Glad it's not my job, but I hope he loves it-- bringing beauty to the masses.

Do you think he could come over to my Mum's garden? He's doing such a wonderful job!

With patience, and quietness, he's slowly making a master piece..

Multiple shades of begonias on a beautifully prepared bed... great perspective on this shot. This gardner is neat and specific. Just look at how he has stacked the empty plastic pots. I have a tendency to throw them over my shoulder and then pick them up when I am through.... Hummmm?

Bises,

Better than sitting in an office. Great color.

What fun to be able to follow and watch the changes in the annual garden. Must be work of dedicated workers.
