Second step: vignette C. The gardener is pruning the bush on the right, the one on the left is not pruned and the stone is on the sidewalk.
Third step: vignette F. The gardener is pruning the bush on the left, the one on the right is already pruned and the stone is on the sidewalk.
Fourth step: vignette B. Both shrubs are pruned and the gardener removes the stone.
Fifth step: vignette A. The stone is set apart, everything is pruned and sweeps.
