Mr Robinson points to tiny leaflets poking !their way through the cracks in a brick walk -- those are fox- glove plantsl I can't tell you what a devil of a time I had in trying to sprout them, and here they volunteerF When you gaze in wonder at Mr Robinson's flower garden -- it is ten feet wide and over I00 feet long -- you behold a "riot" of color and a general hubbub of varieties. "I like the dahlias, and my daughter does too. I have five different colors of and I have lhe largesl blue iris you'll lind in the county!" A tmique feature, a reminder of his New England heritage, of Mr Robinson's flower garden is a while wooden garden gate. The gate now leads nowhere. A white chair is situated squarely in front -- sort of a throne where the ruler of a garden could sit to survey his kingdom, if only he ever would. "That gate came from a house on Winthrop Street in Taunton. I bought it after the original owner died. Interest- ingly, it was designed by Iny son- in-law's uncle," Mr Robinson ex- plains. Several Ihnes each year, Arth||r Harris of Middleboro, Massachusets, visits his old friend. The two men spend their day visiting and digging, trans- planting, pruning, weeding, and mulching. Mr Robinson will look at his friend and say "Did I get that right, Arthur?. If l didn't you make it right, okey?" Mr Harris gently helps Mr Robinson to his feet. (Mr Robin- son will often spend hours in his garden on all fours because ".. .it is easier that way. Sometimes I find it very difficult to get up.") The two friends amble to another part of the garden and begin their work anew. "How about a couple of toma- tos?" Mr Robinson asks. "And, would you like to have a start of that big iris I was telling you about? Help yourself to the rasp- berries. Here, try this one, it's bigger than the rest." H.

If you just drive by and look, Mr Robinson has provided the ift of beauty. BUY ONE MEDIUM TWO TOPPING PIZZA for $6,99 GET YOUR SECOND MEDIUM PIZZA for $2.991 I Broadway show.
