[2/2] to work on it, somebody has thrown new trash there, he still likes being able to do some concrete work to make his neighborhood a little better. (Combeferre gives him some bulbs to plant there and Feuilly thinks they’re pretty but doesn’t realize until a year later that bulb flowers are perennial–and then he almost starts to cry when he realizes he’s left a mark in his neighborhood. People will see and enjoy those daffodils year after year, even long after Feuilly himself is gone.)
oh no…. just the though of him putting so much care in that little bit of land and making it look nice and grow things and nurture it until the land itself gives back to the citizen with flowers and vegetable and fruit (I bet he tries to tomatoes, too, because those are easy, and after some years (and a lot of encouragement) he manages to get it to form a community garden that the whole neighbourhood can participate in!
