Don't take your bath here!!

It was yesterday afternoon. I was on the other side of the bank of the canal when I saw this man. He was in the water and he was trying to climb the slope toward the road. It is not usual to see this especially in this season.
He had just fallen into water with his bicycle by accident. Fortunately he wasn't injured!

Whether big, small or ill-favoured, your green space is your chance to display your skill and artistic approach to the world around you.

Pruning is a horticultural practice

Pruning is a horticultural practice that alters the form and growth of a plant. Based on aesthetics and science, pruning can also be considered preventive maintenance. Many problems may be prevented by pruning correctly during formative years for a tree or shrub. On the photo it is not a question of pruning!! I don't like to see this..
