Places– of Charm

Places-- of Charm

A curving row of hedges gives a front yard, even a small one, more depth. After staking out a design, our gardener dug out grass and put in a border, the flexible type made from recycled tires. The fun began! I dug holes and placed twenty boxwood plants along the border. A filled-in hedge takes time.

    Hi Kathleen, I drove by your house on my way to work this morning. Your front yard is improving. The photo you posted doesn’t do it justice.

    Your little front yard has charm, Kathleen– the geraniums in the window box, the palm tree, and the winding curve of boxwood.

    Ha, that shadow– it’s you taking the picture, Kathleen! Must have been early this morning to make the shadow long like that!

    Hey Reba, yes it was 8 a.m. I stuck in a couple of 6-packs of annuals around the small olive tree, and then I snapped a photo with my phone.

    Thanks, Annika. We need to give ourselves time as well. My friend, J.G., who had a stroke a few weeks ago has made significant gains with therapy. Sometimes things happen, and we feel we are falling behind. But dreams don’t have deadlines. Gardening falls into the dream category– I can actually make an improvement, and then mother nature takes over. I do like neat trimmed hedges, though!
