This is part of Penny's garden across the street from us. "Across the street..." somehow suggests distance and separation. As the street is actually an eight foot wide alley, our neighborhood gardens visually run together. For me, looking at Penn's green lushness, this works out pretty well. For her, I'm kind of an eyesore extension of her garden. There is a reason I have not posted pictures of my entry garden this year. It's a weedy shambles. I hope to get a handle on it eventually. If Penny has any weeds, she at least has just cause, as tending her ailing mother has been more important than tending the hostas the past couple of years.
