The talking garden

Boy and girl - with pukeko

What does a garden say about its gardener?

I am kind of chief gardener around these parts, although M supplies most of the physical labour - except for the brick-laying.

From this garden you could conclude that the gardener is a little lazy, as well as basic. Daisies and Camellias are not exactly the most adventurous plants.  It also shows a certain joie de vivre in its careless, busy planting. The statue suggests a fondness for children, and the pukeko a cheeky sense of play. At a stretch, the colours and sensual lilt or 'story' of the garden suggests an artist's seductive eye. As Liz Lemon might say: I want to go to there - and I did! And I do!
