A heart for all seasons
Joann Noren, of San Rafael, had a clever mind four months ago .
Her local burn department told her she had to remove all the junipers that had been growing in the front yard ever since her house was built. She did and then decided to turn her lemons into lemonade, or more accurately, her bare landscape into a heart human body .
“ I used the heart shape because I thought it would be perfect for the space and the design gives me an opportunity to plant fresh flowering plants on a even footing whatever the season calls for, ” she says. “ last workweek, I planted primroses. They are even little, however, they will grow and spread out a little more, and I like the different colors. ”
Her neighbors love the design and have asked her for help with their gardens, but she declines. At 83 years old, she says, she has to have a helper aid her twice a week .
“ The most fantastic idea is that I look at the affection when I am in my kitchen and it gives me lots of joy, ” she says. ”
If you have a beautiful or matter to Marin garden or a newly designed Marin home, I ’ five hundred love to know about it .
Please send an electronic mail describing either one ( or both ), what you love most about it, and a photograph or two. I will post the very best ones in approaching columns. Your name will be published and you must be over 18 years previous and a Marin resident .
