The new gardener

Pinelands, Cape Town

6 September 2008

Since things are getting more expensive, we thought we would get in some cheaper labour to do the gardening for us. The new gardener doesn't have a lot of experience, but she is eager to learn. The only problem was that she kept on drinking the water and also didn't want to walk all around the garden to water everywhere!!!

Intense concentration need to walk around

What happens when I stick my finger in here?

This is pleasant

Hmm, it runs rather slowly

I am busy

Does this water taste good?

Err, no

Let me water this spot for a while

Thirsty work this gardening

Is it still coming out?

Another little sip

It sprays far when you put your finger in here

What's that?
