Gardens & Parks-Across The Street, GloriaV


Manuel working on his plants. A few years back, his sister threw in a lot of poppies and other to cheer his yard up. She doesn't live there but was visiting. That odd looking house is his garage/shed. Manuel doesn't really look like this but as I saw him tending to his garden, he appeared vital and energized and younger than his 80 years in life.
 
 
Have a wonderful day and hopefully we all got some needed rain here in California. Yay for the Gods!

    1. Hi Joan. Perhaps that is why he was depicted as younger. He actually doesn't look like he is in his 80's. Thanks for the comment. Have a great day.

  5. Love the bright colours, and good old Manual who is still able to bend and garden at 80! The poppies make me smile, they seem to have faces and determination to brighten the garden up - plus their jazzy white edges. Lovely.
