Gardener mulching the big mixed border.
Gardener was a cowman on a big estate, he looked after more than 200 cows until the owner got rid of the herd and the herdsmen too. He is a wonderful countryman, full of local lore; he knows every bird that flies overhead.
I love listening to him while we are working, in particular, when he mangles his words.
"Racing pingeons" are his great love, unfortunately his missus has banned him from keeping them.
