In the Victory Gardens

J. has a magnificent garden. He has a koi pond (lilies and irises, bullfrog) and a climbing hydrangea and a stone bench and a Rose of Sharon and a chair with toile cushions. He observed to Kyle that he had to lower the limbs of his curly willow.

Me: How do you keep them down?
J.: With the heads of my enemies.

(Grinning, he indicates the large string-tied stones pendant from the willow branches.)
