As a part of our regular walks through the farmer’s field down the street, my 5-year-old daughter, Maya, my golden retriever, Buddy, and I always like the visit to “Liz and Sue’s” the best.
Buddy gets his play date with their dogs, Macy and Missy. Maya gets to play on Sue’s swing set and have impromptu graham cracker-and-juice tea parties with Liz (sometimes wearing a big garden hat borrowed from Liz).
But my treat is walking through Liz’s garden. She always has a plant (or a bunch of plants) I’ve never seen before, at least growing in the relatively cold climate of Zone 6a in western NY!
These pics here are from our visit in mid-July.
So, do you have neighbors whose gardens you regularly visit? Are you like me, and drawn to the rare, out-of-zone and unusual? Or do you favor more traditional plants? Post a comment, and let me know!
