The Happy Farm of the Fallen Noble Daughter ~A Slow Remote Wasteland Life Exploration with My Dearest~ – Chapter 46

Chapter 46: Rose garden landscaping plan

In the light rain, two horses climbed up the hill.

As the mountain cabin came into view, the rain intensified.

Carefully entering the cabin, Daniel took off his coat and hung it on a protruding nail.

“It’s about time for the rainy season.”

“By the way, what brings you here, Daniel-sama?”

As Diana started boiling water and brewing tea, Daniel spoke to Leon.

“I came today because I have something to discuss with you.”

“. . .Me?”

“Yes. Have you ever grown roses?”

Leon sat down on a nearby chair and nodded.

“If it’s roses, they were blooming at the Heinz residence as well.”

“Oh, I see. Then it should be right up your alley.”

“Not necessarily. The larger the flower, the more difficult it is to make it bloom. On the other hand, mini roses grow rapidly even if left unattended. . .So, what do you need me for?”

“Let me get straight to the point. I want you to create a rose garden.”

As the tea was ready, Diana took her seat as well.

“A rose garden. . .?”

“Yes. As I mentioned before, the nobles have too much free time on their hands. It’s not good for their health to stay cooped up in inns all the time, and the opportunity to interact with people is lost due to the scattered inns. So, a request came in to create a gathering place where everyone can come together, like a salon.”

Leon asked Daniel with a puzzled expression.

“. . .What is a salon?”

“Simply put, it’s a social gathering place.”

“I see. So, like a meeting hall?”

“I see. For now, everyone is starving for conversation and visual stimulation.”

“I see. But where exactly are we going to create it? And where will the funds and seedlings come from?”

“We’ve already settled that matter. They purchased land on the outskirts of Pabst village through a joint venture. The brick masons have already started laying the foundation. I want Leon to plant and manage the plants.”

“I see. I’ll have to go see it once.”

“. . .Will you do it?!”

“How much will the pay be?”

“We’ll give a daily wage for each task. How about five silver coins per day?”

“If it’s five silver coins per day, that would be equivalent to earning one gold coin in 20 days. . .”

Diana and Leon exchanged glances.

“Alright, let’s do it. When should we go?”

“The delivery of the seedlings will start next week, so it will be then.”

“But before that, I want to visit the site once. We need to assess the sunlight, wind direction, and location.”

“I see. Should we go now?”

“We don’t have any farming work today, after all. . .”

Leon gazed outside as the rain fell.

“Since it’s raining, why don’t we go?”

Diana asked.

“Just. . .?”

“Yeah. It’s the perfect weather to see which areas of the rose garden have good drainage and which don’t.”

“I see. That’s what you mean.”

“Diana, please stay here and keep watch. We’ll be back before dinner.”

“Understood. Be careful of your footing, especially because of the rain.”

The two men left again in the rain, leaving Diana behind.

Diana looked at the bottle with leftover syrup and her heart leaped at the word “rose garden.”

(That means. . .I might be able to make syrup again with pruned roses that are no longer needed)

Laura said it was delicious. Diana gazed at the row of jars that had multiplied on the wall-mounted shelf.

(And if it’s a salon. . .it’s a chance to sell products!)

Furthermore, if Leon continues to work, a stable secondary income can be obtained.

Although George and Laura were still weighing on her heart, Diana felt that something invisible had started to roll smoothly.

Leon, who had returned from the rain, came back to the mountain cabin completely drenched. 

Diana approached him with a linen towel.

“How was the rose garden?”

Leon, while roughly discarding his wet clothes, took the towel.

“The bricks have some issues. They repel water too much.”

“Oh, is that so?”

“It’s good for a house, but not suitable for paving stones. We need lighter bricks that allow water to pass through; otherwise, the roses will rot their roots, and the puddles won’t drain after rain.”

Leon wiped his head vigorously, half-naked.

“By the way, we have another meeting scheduled for next week.”

“. . .Can I come too?”

“Yeah. Oh, by the way, Daniel wanted more flower candies. How about making some with white flowers this time?”

“I’ll bring them along. And this rose syrup too.”

“Yeah, the more sales channels, the better.”

“Also, this.”

Diana placed the lemon sugar preserves on the dining table. Leon couldn’t help but burst into laughter.

“Hey. . .you’re too business-savvy.”

“Well, everyone gets tired during physical work, don’t they?”

“. . .Sorry, I jumped to conclusions. These are treats for the craftsmen, right?”

“Yes. As a substitute for the customary gift when my husband visits.”

“Diana, you’re truly a wonderful wife.”

Saying that, Leon embraced Diana and kissed his wife with his cold lips.

・・・

One week later.

During a brief break in the rainy season, Diana and Leon were wide-eyed at the construction site of the rose garden.

“He’s Keaton-san, the brick mason.”

Simultaneously, upon Daniel’s introduction, Diana and Leon whispered the same thing in their hearts.

(He’s Laura’s father. . .)

Keaton seemed to have realized the smallness of the countryside and grinned, nodding.

“Oh, it’s you guys. . .Laura took all of that syrup. Hahaha.”

He showed them a smile that he could never show George, right in front of the two.
