My childhood home had a wide open front yard; there was a stone wall and a low bush that came straight across the front. That’s all been sculpted away.
Many years ago, my parents commented that all of our neighbors were landscaping like crazy. So now it’s come to where I used to live. But the biggest thing was that none of us were home; we had all moved – or died, leaving this place all but forgotten. Except for the fire hydrant; it’s not like any of us could forget that.
