    Wow, what a variety! How many do you care for all together? I’m glad you have your own little jungle where your “voodoo gothic steampunk old hippie sensibilities” can run amok. Gardens are so self-expressive.

    • Mo Crow says:

      we look after 20 inner city gardens, 5 are high maintenance once a fortnight, 10 once a month and the other 5 we visit each quarter just to make sure the customers are doing the right thing by their plants + 10 quirky indoor plant hire jobs ranging from a tattoo studio to a big sports club.

    Oh Mo, thank you so much for sharing these images, it’s wonderful to see the work you are doing on the big scale! Just lovely, very nourishing for the soul.

  3. working gardens is heaven!

    love you mo!

  4. Jane Bodnaruk says:

    variety plus – they are wonderful

  5. Carol says:

    Delightful, Mo, to see the other places where you work. Gardens have their own magic and I’m sure you add your own to them. Thank you for the glimpses.

  6. I really enjoyed seeing all these gardens that you care for; thanks for sharing. Also enjoyed the voodoo steampunk cicada, and will try to keep the Thompson quote in mind. He was, after all, a professional – we just may not want to specify his particular area of expertise! :~) ha!
