The home had few favorable plantings to speak of on its small 200-by-75-foot lot. Only those that survived neglect and the test of time, which generally meant they were mostly garden thugs. It was surrounded by Norway maples, an uneven privet hedge in the front, Mulberry trees, two old rhododendrons and a daylily patch. The first undertaking was sprucing up the back entry, which was the primary entry to the home. From there, the garden and a new career unfolded.
