Perhaps one of the nicest front yard garden arrangements is this house in Colonial Mill Estates on the Maryland side of town. The photo does not do it justice.
My poor corn is stumbling along. I didn't expect much from it due to where I planted it but it has tasseled.
Speaking of stumbling I stumbled across this on the internet, the gravestone of Louisa Alcott. I had been to her graves years ago and it was in similar condition with pencils, notebooks, stones etc around it. Writers write but I don't expect to see a hand come out and grab a pencil then disappear back into the ground. Interestingly the grave of Benjamin Franklin has pennies tossed on it.
Dr Lynch, whose office was on the other end of the block, had the lion share of business in that time period. I have been told it was because he had easy payment terms versus Dr Lecates who usually wanted payment after he provided services. On July 19, 1945 Dr. Lecates decided, for reasons unknown, to kill himself and stepped out in front of a passing train in Delmar. It worked. Since he was a Doctor I would think he would have come up with a less painful way to died than stepping out in front of a train.
