Two former university colleagues of mine live about a quarter of a mile. One was head of the religion department and the other (sometimes with his wife) teaches ecology, among other science courses. One has a chemically treated weedless, leafless, manicured ;awn and yard. The other yard is more organic with both wild and domestic flowers. One yard has more varieties of hosta plants than I can count. The other yard is more casual with lots of color. Both are friends. Here’s some pictures from their yards.
