I spotted this sight while strolling the suburbs of Chicago a couple of weeks ago. I love how the gardener has camouflaged the chainlink fence with cosmos, sunflowers, and what looks to be a euphorbia (anyone know what that plant is, specifically?). It’s simple, inexpensive, low-maintenance, and charming, and gives them the freedom to do something completely different next year.
