A blessing for a neighbor

My neighbor is my boyfriend's Aunt. She is at the age that she no longer drives (by her own choice.) In her yard are four evergreen trees. Grass no longer grows under two of them.  After visiting a friends place and seeing the garden they created, Dale came back inspired. He bought thirteen hostas of several varieties. He planted them spaciously in the "dead zone"

Garden under evergreens
On one side there is late afternoon to evening sun. To that side we added two hydrangea plants that love acidic soil.

Next spring we hope to add lily of the valley around the trunks. In two years this garden should be full and covered all summer long.
