Brother walked by this house in West Asheville and he knew a real gardener lived here.
As Brother continued to walk by through the seasons he sensed that the gardener was no longer able to spend as much time in the garden. A good garden in West Asheville was going bad.
This good garden was approached to find an elderly couple in their 80's who had not been able to tend to their lovely garden as well as they would have liked in the last couple of years.
And so it came to be that a herd of other gardeners gathered to assist. In one quick cleansing purge, the upper layer of order was restored to a good portion of the garden. But this is a very good garden and it will need much more, on a regular basis.
That leaves me wondering if this was a good deed if it is only done once?
And if elderly gardeners in their 80's are going to become like adopted stray cats in this phase of my life.
