It's always nice to see how the gardeners are doing at the plots in Bellevue State Park, and yesterday was a particularly nice day to walk through the woods and meadows on the way to see how these "worker bees" are doing. In the woods, I found this overturned tree displaying what is probably the reason the wind knocked this tree over. And, since it had rained for the last couple of days, the woods appeared in duplicate in a puddle.
Arriving at the around 300 garden plots that Bellevue State Park rents out, I found one man tending to his well-kept plot. He said he brings in new soil each year, and that it has been so windy that this year's flags that decorate his fencing had already begun to tatter. Being a fan of flamingos, I complimented him on his pink beauty!
This gentleman said that the grandest plot was across the road, one decorated by a person who appears to be a Navy veteran. And he was right, it was tended with military precision. Bet he kept the corners of his cot tightly tucked in like the corners of an envelope (unless they have another method that's even neater nowadays)!
