Nethergate in Bloom was painted in oil on canvas showing Dundee Parks
Dept. at their best providing a very colourful summer display of bedding
plants in the city centre.
This image has special memories for John as he was trained as a gardener
with the Dundee parks Dept in the early sixties, before he chose art as
not long after this oil painting was completed the town centre was redeveloped
and all the flower beds removed. This view shows the town in better more colourful times.
