The Gardener

Has help this morning

 They are pulling up all the flowers
 By the truck load and out the gate to the church compost
where all the main garden work starts.They care for acres
and acres of landscaping. 
The little tree that said I can. (come back or I will)
One little green leaf has appeared. 

I went to a new dentist this morning  got my teeth cleaned
and a check up. Need a new crown, should be solid gold
they want so much money. but (Will it make me feel like a Queen?) 
No! more like a poor subject of the Queen.

Those gold crowns take a 'King's Ransom', and I've bought my share :)_
Gardeners are working hard to replace all of the flowers, it's still sad to see them dumped on the compost pile when they are still in bloom.
Rain maybe on the way !

Phil is still paying off his crown. Seems the price has tripled in the last 10 years. Our dentist has a crown making machine in his office, so you can get it on the same day. It cost around $135,000. Not the crown, the machine.

Oh dentistry is so expensive. I am counting my pennies. It must be looking a little bare just now. Do they put in mums or anything?

I suppose they will put in Mums, Pansys and Kale. Look at that will be fun to watch it grow back. Dentists sure charge enough now a days:(

I really am not a fan of going to the dentist, and the cost doesn't help!

Mildred said...

Your gardener there is a busy guy!!!
So sorry about your dental work. We've had our share and it is so very expensive.

It's nice to have the beautiful grounds there to enjoy.

Talking about a dentist I need to make a call myself, putting it off.
We can all watch your trees grow back. What kind are they again. Isn't it nice to not have all that work to do yourselves.

I should be the king of Iowa with the number of crowns that I have. It is interesting to see what the gardeners are doing. Sometimes the boss at the desk that directs that stuff is out of touch with the real garden world.
