Theme Day: Men at Work

Nelson City Council (I think) funded a Chinese Garden at one corner of Queen's Garden to celebrate Nelson's Sister City relationship with Huangshi, Hubei Province, a while back; I don't know how long these things take normally, but the garden has been in the making for at least a year. The other week, however, I finally found a couple of guys working on it. Yay! This place is going to be fantastic when it is completed. And this is, I think, going to be my favorite feature in the garden.

Today is Theme Day. Other DP Blogs have also posted "Men at Work" shots. Please click on the numbers below to view them.

  9. Thank you for your visits, people.

    Denton, on this particular project, it's been bl**dy hard to find anybody working.

    Eddie, you are NOT vanishing.
