Growing Things Haibun

brambly Apple tree

My maternal grandgsther was a landscape gardener who tended tge gardens of the gentry. He went wherever the work was and he and his family stayed in the gate lodge of his employer. They lived in many places, even up a mountain, but eventually he settled in Terenure in a house with a big garden and two brambly trees. Once the fruit was picked, my grandfather wpuld share it with his neighbours. He was a social man who lived parties and he enjoyed listening to plays on the radio. He died two years before I was born.
