My next door neighbor Mrs. Barbara (to the right side) also likes to garden. I just have a hard time catching her at home. She travels alot, so she is gone alot. I did manage to catch up with her yesterday. Her front yard is not that big, and it is 90% shade. She has a lot going on in such a small space and it looks great.
She has a pretty large rose bed in the front with several roses.
She has lots of hostas as well...BIG hostas at that. I have never seen hostas this big. She has them planted all along the front of the house. The crazy thing is that the hostas shown in the picture are in FULL sun! The hostas that are in the shade are half this size. Pretty strange considering hostas are "shade" plants. Makes me reconsider where I have mine planted. I love hostas, but I only love them when they are big like theses are. Not piddly ones like mine...blah!
They are great!
Out by her mailbox she has a GINORMOUS century plant. WOW!!! I take it for granted considering I drive by it everyday, but once you actually walk up to it, you get a grasp for how big it really is.
I am glad to be surrounded by neighbors who take pride in their yards, and garden. Well atleast the ones within eyesight.
