Rest in Peace Willem Kwist, Roof Gardener

Check out The Villager for Willem Kwist’s obituary. He sounds like a fascinating man.

“Kwist would plant 400 tulips in April, irises in May and an azalea tree and numerous flowers and plants from all over the world throughout the spring, summer and fall. He also built apartment shelving, several photographic darkrooms and many wooden furnishings for friends,” says The Village.

Does anyone have any photos of his garden?
