My new (short term) obsession

If you know me, you know I love lists.

Mix that passion with my current obsession with Elizabeth Lawrence (as with my others, not guaranteed to last beyond tomorrow; could go for years) and this is what you get: A group of lists from her writings.  I will make sure each list is a different posting. I got these from A Garden of One's Own edited by Barbara Scott and Bobby J. Ward.

Looking for property border plants that will prevent encroachment from neighbor. Maybe Leyland Cypress or Fortune's Tea Olive. Must be reasonably priced.
