After spending a fun day visiting some nurseries on the Kitsap Peninsula (A talk by Dan Hinkley and shopping at Valley Nursery, Dragonfly Farms, and Far Reaches Farm - posts to follow) we had a delicious meal at The Public House Grill to which Alison had introduced me last summer. Following this we drove and walked around town a bit enjoying the old buildings and nice gardens. I've often wondered how they all kept their lawns looking so good. Wouldn't you know, they have a large staff that comes in every day at dusk to tidy things up.
You can tell who the tourists are in this town. They're the ones who stop the car, get out and take pictures of the garden staff at work. this lawn mowing and edging team worked away, totally ignoring me.
Until I dropped my lens cap and it made a little noise on the road. Funny, the car door slam didn't faze them at all.
Must be quite a few of these work crews as just up the street we there was a group of three working on this lawn.
Here's their response to an ambulance, fire truck and a couple of other emergency vehicles speeding buy sirens blaring so loud that I had to cover my ears.
So now you know how the gardens here always look so well groomed, they have a staff! Now if I could get them to come to my garden and haul away the huge piles of bamboo and other plants that have been getting long-overdue haircuts, I'd have it made!
