Tartt, Donna

Its vegetation was mighty, magnificent, luxuriantly untended, full of erratic growths decked with monstrous blossoming, unknown to the spade and watering-pot of gardeners.
Растительность здесь была пышная, великолепная, дико могущественная; скопление случайностей создало это чудовищное цветение без помощи заступа и лейки садовника.

On seeing Tatiana, at first, he nodded as usual, making caressing, inarticulate sounds; then he looked carefully at her, dropped his spade, jumped up, went up to her, brought his face close to her face....
Увидев Татьяну, он сперва, по обыкновению, с ласковым мычаньем закивал головой; потом вгляделся, уронил лопату, вскочил, подошел к ней, придвинул свое лицо к самому ее лицу...

Below, in the garden, Jeanbernat was still driving his spade into the ground in heavy, regular fashion.
Внизу, в саду, все еще мерно и глухо стучал о землю заступ Жанберна.

Scott takes his foot off the spade, not as if he's grown impatient with it but as if he has—for the moment, at least—found another use for it.
Скотт убирает ногу с лопатки, не потому что надоело держать её на штыке, а с таким видом, будто нашёл ей, в смысле – ноге, другое применение (хотя бы на минутку).

We would not deal with a man thus plodding ever, leaning on a hoe or a spade as a staff between his work, not as a mushroom, but partially risen out of the earth, something more than erect, like swallows alighted and walking on the ground:-
Как хорошо было бы, если бы человек не гнул вечно спину над лопатой или мотыгой, не врастал в землю, как гриб, а легко стоял на ней, точно ласточка, присевшая отдохнуть:
