Chaos theory

Along the back property line runs rampant a tumble of sweet woodruff, ferns, and lilies-of-the valley. Two weeks ago, the front of this bed was lit up with masses of "Mount Hood" daffodils. A row of tall evergreens wade through the chaotic greenery.

When I look at my neighbor's carefully spaced hostas surrounded by a sea of mulch, this bed makes me feel disoriented and somewhat dishevelled. But maybe I'm just dizzy from imagining what could be planted in that unused space over the hedge.
