Which Franz is right?
“The boss doesn’t like things too tidy,“ sighs gardener Franz Rottensteiner. Owner Franz Staffler wants his park to be a well-tended wilderness, so his gardener has to keep his inner perfectionist in check. Instead of sweeping up the leaves, he is learning to relax and let them be. Things are going well, he says: ”I haven’t killed a single plant so far.“ Although there was one close shave, he admits, glancing furtively at the pomegranate.
Every day, the gardener makes his round of the park. He has no fixed schedule, but there are quiet times. ”I can’t do much before 9 am,“ Franz explains, ”at least nothing noisy like mowing or leaf blowing.” Happily, Franz only needs to mow every five days. And those leaves can wait.
