Thanks for the comments, Moose. I have no idea where the Grape Hyacinth came from. Several years ago, I found them
near the street. These were 100 ft away from that spot.
The Spring Beauty and Speedwell are common east of the Mississippi River.
The fence was a mistake. I had it installed when my wife wanted another dog, a Poodle like her Mom's. Before she
found a dog she liked, a long-haired black kitten wandered into our lives and adopted us. He climbed the fence with
ease. Now it is covered with vines and foliage planted by perching birds, and is an eyesore. So much for good
I'm now on the third property line separator on the north side. When I bought, in '81, there was a big, healthy Eugenia
hedge. Lovely, but robust and requiring regular trimming. Then a new virus showed up, infecting all the many Eugenia
hedges and such.
So in '91 came the grape stake fence my then neighbors HAD to have. As is common with such wood fences, the posts have
been cracking at the base and sections leaning over.
Now our current neighbors are doing a major re-creation of their front yard. So, another new fence.
I guess 29 years is a pretty good run for the old fence. This new one is FAR better built, so I figure it's the last one
I'll have to deal with.
Good Neighbor Moose
