image for Monet Garden Job Goes To Scouser
I don't effin' believe it - an appropriate painting! Er, sorry... a Monet. Giverny.

A gardener from Merseyside has landed one of the prize jobs in horticulture - tending Claude Monet's garden.

Fred Compost has to keep the garden, at Giverny, Normandy, in the condition it was when the impressionist master lived there.

Some of Monet's finest works - including his Waterlilies series - were painted at Giverny and the garden is well-known to art lovers and gardeners alike.

A beaming Mr Compost told us: "Yeah, 's grea' da', isni' eh? Grea' job or wha', la?

"Ah dunno why dey chose me, likhe, I jes aird dis job were goin' in de Money Gaardn, so I taw' 'I'd likhe sum o' dat.' I mean, likhe, fancy wairkhin' in a gaardn whair de money grows on de treez, likhe.

"So, Ah told 'em ah'd done all dis stuff at da' Kew place in da' London, an' dey gimme de job!

"'S too good to be trew, isni' likhe?"
