A stressed gardener

There is much talk of the pleasure of visiting gardens, but no mention of the “stress” of the gardener who opens his garden to visitors. A week before the operation “Welcome to my garden in Brittany”, which he takes part in, papi Jo scrutinizes each massif, each plant of the garden, each blade of the lawn, wondering if everything will be ship-shape to seduce the visitors.
He wishes he could speed up a bloom here, slow down another one there. He hopes it will rain a few days before the visits to rev up the lawn, but not on the same day …
In the meantime, here is a little overview of the current state of the garden.
