I have been watching developments down the street with great interest. There is a very beautiful hedge of Bouganvillea that runs down the road for about a kilometer downstream from chez moi..
It is possible that the first European to observe these plants was Jeanne Baré, Commerçon’s lover and assistant whom he sneaked on board (despite regulations) disguised as a man (and who thus became the first woman to circumnavigate the globe).
Anyway, first arrive diggers that take out a big chunk from behind the hedge.
“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” That is my house in the background.
Next they lovingly move each Bouganvillea and replant it one meter further back.
Why would you do all this work to gain one meter?
I ask my friend at the gasorinstandu what is going on. He say “Make road big.”
Well I suppose that works.
