Twelve Days of Gardeners…

In the very early days of flowerflinging, the posts often had illustrations.  There was more time then to make them.  For this day after Twelfth Night, I am reprising a wholly illustrated post from January 2013.

On the twelfth day of gardening, my gardener gave to me – tra la!
