I like to repeat this story in programs I do.
When I was a new Garden staff member here (over 15 years ago now), one of our wise volunteers talked about how she'd thought about the view from the windows as she (and her husband), another Garden volunteer, created their extraordinary garden from the shell of the original front and back lawn surrounding their house.
What a wonderful inspiration for novice gardeners (at the time)!
We never tire of the view from our living room window, created by initial plantings that we made soon after moving into our old house, and now expanded by a front pathway and woodland plantings.
