When is more and more too much? "Gardeners are all cut from the same cloth," says Joyce, who belongs to the local garden club and loves nothing more than redistributing plants crowded out of her yard. "We don't just garden to look out at it. We do it to share." She adds, "There's always more to learn."
Shown: The path from the driveway to the cocktail patio swoops by hot pink, crimson, and white impatiens and foliage plants, including hosta 'Minuteman' and lambs' ears. Adding height to this grouping are rudbeckia, oriental lilies, a weeping vine spilling out of a raised terra-cotta planter, and a Japanese maple, whose rusty-red leaves echo wax begonias hovering behind the hosta.
