At the Tatton Park Flower Show there were many small creative gardens on show.
This young man had created a garden with ships masts included.
He also had a music stand with brass band music clipped on.
Not really sure how to take it all.
I kinda guess I am getting old.Wink

A very big thankyou to LynneJoyce & Jat_Riski for their user awards for my sunkissed flowers.
A happy bunny here.

Cracking shot Barbara, I love the idea of a gardener wearing a top hat Smile I guess that's modern fashion!

Almost surreal and well captured, Barbara, the placement of the guy is perfect. The seem to use poles/totems frequently in memorials nowadays.

What a well composed image. This garden wouldn't appeal to me I fear. I guess anything goes when you're young and want to be noticed as modern, forward thinking and creative! Trying to work out how I'd be able to get into the flower borders to weed while wearing a hat of that sort too, though at least it might stop the local midgies getting into my hair and biting my scalp!

Some modern 'art work' leaves me wondering too, Barbara, in fact most of it does: but a nicely captured shot as he contemplates his creation.

Charming and stylish. The tones are pretty good, too, especially the dark greens and purples in the f/g - nicely restrained. The combination of all the verticals almost makes one forget that the composition is horizontal Smile
Just like Albert, my first thought was that you had found a gardeneress!
