JIM Foster, of Denton, takes every opportunity he can to enjoy his large, colourful garden.
Jim, 83, likes to spend a good two to three hours tending to it every day.
But he said: “What with the weather lately - all the rain, you have to make the most of it when you can!”
Former gamekeeper Jim says that the garden gets the most attention outside of shooting season as he still likes to keep his hand in the profession. But he feels his interests work well together as the garden is comfortably settled in by the time that he is needed out in the fields.
Jim added that the size and location of the garden help make it great. He said: “It can show itself off more than most gardens.”
