Summary

Amateur film-maker F. P. Barnitt films his father relaxing and gardening in his beautifully maintained garden. Mr Barnitt Sr. waters the vegetables, cuts the flowers and sprays the plants. He also walks through the garden with his wife, practices his golf putt, and pretends to be asleep under his newspaper whilst sitting in a deckchair.
