It wasn’t something I expected to see in Venice, a man wheeling a heavy load of turf down the Strada Nuova in Cannaregio. He gave his permission for a photo to be taken, then we went our separate ways.
The only information I got from him is that he has a small garden in Cannaregio. Now, I wish I had asked where he got the turf, and how he’ll keep it cut. I’ve never seen a lawn mower in Venice, although I have seen evidence of grass having been cut.
I hope he has success with his little patch of grass and with whatever else he’ll grow in his garden.
