Gardening Ed's Way

Our neighbor, Ed, gardens in his own way. I always like to see what's going on with him. I've written about him before, the way he walks around carrying his coffee cup and (I truly believe) willing the flowers to pop right up out of the ground. He loves relics, as you can see by these photos, and he loves to recycle. These wheels cost $$$ at auctions and he's just waiting for some more good ones to come up so he can continue his fence. See those round rocks?? I lusted after those when he first brought them home. When he told me where he got them and how hard it was (way up in the mountains, a whole day's work digging them out and hauling them) I dropped any idea I had of talking him out of one of them for my yard. It's fun to know people like him. They make you really appreciate individualism. Diane
