Martha Evelyn Bailey waters her flower garden on Taylor Avenue that often draws passersby in for a closer look.
Gardening keeps Bailey going strong at 83

 

Standing among the blooms of bright pink, deep orange and golden yellow, Martha Evelyn Bailey said sometimes even she wonders where all the flowers have come from.

She tends to her garden all day long, six days a week, stopping only for a quick bite of lunch before heading back outside again. She takes a break on Sunday, but still makes sure to water her flowers.

Although she is very tired at night, Bailey said several years of working in a garden is what keeps her in good health and spirits at age 83.
