Mary-Marie Anne contrary,
Look how this garden grows.
With Hostas tall and taller walls
Of pretty stones all in rows
On our site seeing tour of stonework all day yesterday we first visited Linnea's farm and saw some of the lovely garden flowers and walls there. It was wonderful to see her property later in July with everything now looking so green and lush.
Why do hostas look so good in front of walls? Perhaps because the walls look so good behind them? Maybe.
Or maybe because if the walls were in front you couldn't see any of the hostas. In that case, there definitely wouldn't be a 'hosta la vista'.
