I think we can do it with two workes in Haninge. I know a few people involved. And the municipality wanted to buy park photos from me the other day.

Beautifying the city takes lots of effort, Jack! The woman in that marvelous colored shirt looks interested in their work.

at least they all look as if they are getting their hands dirty (except for that one who is using gloves!)

I see a street light in the background. Maybe you can stake it out and find out how many it takes to change a light bulb.

I'm sure taxpayers would probably say that's 3 too many. Hopefully, the planter looks dynamite now.

I will not tell you about DC.

Your tax dollars at work!

Cathy Hudspeth said...

One to hold the plant, one to dig the hole, one to place the plant, one to cover the hole, silly!

Sylvia K said...

Yep, your tax dollars at work! Three to give instructions and one to do the work -- just like government in general!! And they have an audience as well! Hope your week is off to a great start, Jack!

I wish I had them for plantings in my yard.

EG CameraGirl said...

Ha! I hope the job didn't take them long!

Love the above comments on this one Jack, they do look to be making the most of it, meanwhile how stylish is the lady walking by wondering to herself 'how many municipal workers does it take to plant flowers in one planter'??
btw I bet your bike helmet doesn't look nearly as dashing as your 'safari hat'!!

Mo said...

I'll bet there's a few more around the corner

Cheap shot, Jack; beneath you.

Do we really have to discuss economies of scale, man hours vs head count, special tax districts that actually pay for these improvements (educate yourself before you open your yap, Lois), yada-yada-yada. You know better, and owe these men (and your readers) an apology.

Charming previous comment.

That lady is very elegant!

Hmmm, looks like 2 workers and 2 overseers. Always love to see workers beautifying the world with flowers!

JM said...

Very funny , Jack! :-)

VP said...

Hey, this looks like Italy!

VP said...

P.S. The pose of the lady is a picture apart!

RedPat said...

At least you are getting flowers!

Halcyon said...

Plenty! You want to make sure the job gets done well. :) You'll have to show us an after shot.

Dianne said...

Obviously a lot Jack ... I would say two planters and two advisers !! Don't worry the same thing happens here and of course after all that they will need to take a smoko break!

Michelle said...

That's what I need, a not stress job.

Funny photo, Jack, I love this shot!

Hahaha! I found this image while looking for something else. This whole time I thought it was only in Toledo, OH that this would happen! My husband and I watched 8 city workers plant one tree last fall. It was just a small tree. The root ball was no bigger then 2 feet wide. They also had three trucks out blocking our street. Five guys stood around the tree taking turns throwing MULCH into the hole while the other three drank coffee and smoked! Sweet job!
