Hibbses’ garden is stunning

Bernice and Bob have created an oasis in the heart of the city. I park the car, walk across the street to Bernice and Bob Hibbs’ home, and smile. The dappled light on the front garden seems to wink at me; this garden is a winner. Hostas of several varieties, still wet with dew, welcome [...]
