    WOWOWOW!!! I am the Horticulturist for Chandor Gardens in Weatherford, Texas, and have always wondered what Chandor's voice sounded like. This little clip has provided us with great insight into his personality and character. Thank you for giving us a little view into the reserved charm of the man who created such a wonderful place. Come see!
