"You see, for Betty Jacobs,

 and 
therapy was gardening."

The Sleeping Giant, Hamden, Connecticut



The hill in the background 
behind my childhood home 
would become Riverside Drive 
where Mrs. Jacobs' would  build 
her garden.

What I looked like when I was mowing Mrs. Jacobs' lawn, circa  1955-64


I was 16 in  this photo,
and would mow Mrs. Jacobs' lawn and tend her garden
until I went off to college at 19.
