Growing things in the garden
Lombardy Poplar trees are really nothing more than giant weeds, but they grow fast. These are about four years old, and were only sticks when we planted them. The purpose was to hide the monstrosity of a house next door, which is now vacant.
Norway Spruce trees in front of them take over. The house still won't be hidden from view, but maybe somebody will buy it who will take care of it and plant grass in the yard (and not yell obscenities at one another at the top of their lungs).
I decided to show you my garden now, before a drought or pests or blight destroy it. This is probably the best it will ever look.
