Maintaining 5,000 Acres of Plant Life

We CNN folks travel...a lot. Being in Atlanta, we fly out of Hartsfield-Jackson International. And in our mad rush to the airport, we always seem to go through the checklist in our minds: Did I bring enough socks? Where is my driver's license? Is my cell phone fully charged? What is that smell in the back of the parking shuttle?
We notice the beautiful flowers, trees, and shrubs that surround the huge travel hub, but we often take their perfection for granted. We rarely ask the question: Who did all of this? It doesn't dawn on us that someone has to plant the bulbs, trim the hedges, and keep everything green. That someone is Abra Lee.
This weekend Reynolds Wolf will be on the job with Abra, to show the world what it takes to maintain and groom the 5-thousand acres of plant life at the world's busiest airport.

Good times!  Join TJ, Betty and Reynolds in the CNN Newsroom Saturday starting at 6am ET/3am PT.

    Sorry to here Our Justices system is failing us again. The Victims of a Rape, Should not have to pay for anything; If so. Then if this has to be. The criminal (keep in mind WE THE PEOPLE, have to put this criminal in jail, feed them,clothe them, and even reeducate the criminal. So Who is really getting punishment here. When does this stop. I understand when it's not you that's getting hurt, but our Justices system is falling apart, so you should care.
