This post is about two gardeners that have ignored the property line that separates their respective lots and created a single garden right over it.

Pat and Gail each have a magnificent garden of their own next to their respective houses.
However, over the property line, they made a garden which is a joint undertaking.
They each take care of their own gardens and work in common on the shared garden.

This takes you to the two houses.
The shared garden is the first thing you see, straight ahead of you.
Below is the shared garden as seen from Pat's house.
The same garden as seen from Gail's house.
Pat has a small vegetable/herb garden which is rabbit- and porcupine- proof. It includes a cold frame, the cover of which she had to leave open this late spring. It was that or killing this magnificent yellow lupine that got away on her.
On Gail's side, across from Pat's vegetable garden, is another bed with an arch between the house and the garage.
Pat contends that Gail has a green thumb. In fact they both are great gardeners - few gardens in the area are in the same league or can compete with either their shared or their respective gardens.
I end up with a collage of various plants in the two (three) gardens.
