A Peddlar's Garden Tour

Friday, April 03, 2009

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. - Mirabel Osler

The smiling gardener that I am about to introduce is Eunice, my sister-in-law. She moved into this house some 15 years ago and has been working on this green space since then. Her garden occupies the compound infront of her terrace house.

Eunice is passionate about growing beautiful plants. She never gives up on a withering plant. She would move the plants around to ensure the plants get the best spot in her garden to survive and grow healthily.

Once, a peddlar, who was in the neighbourhood, came to ask for permission to enter her garden to have a closer look at all her plants. Guess what? The peddlar took about an hour to finish her tour! Below are glimpses of the peddlar's garden tour...

And the tour continues...

...more blooms...

The last pic wasn't really a bloom though. But since it's a nice looking plant, I decided to include it as well.

Hope you have enjoy
ed the tour as much as the peddlar and I have :-)
