A rare professional woman gardener is seen at work in the grounds of Westminster Abbey.
L/Ss of exterior of Westminster Abbey. M/Ss of a woman in the gardens of the Abbey, putting some plants into a flower bed. Commentator tells us she is Marian Care "who is thought to be the only professional woman gardener of this status in the country". Nice L/S of the Abbey from the gardens; an unusual viewpoint.
M/Ss of blossom, tulips and a fountain in the gardens; Marian wheels a weed-burning machine along the path; it scorches weeds between the paving stones. Commentator notes that it is "as easy to operate as pushing a pram - another pursuit at which the ladies excel".
Marian is seen watering some daffodils with a watering can and trimming the lawn outside the Abbey; intercut with several shots of architectural features of the Abbey. Nice L/S of Big Ben. M/S of the statue of King George V outside Westminster Abbey.
