Actually, the police chief's widow died two months ago. She died in grief of the death of her beloved first son.
Yet her garden continues to brighten the neighborhood as it blooms away, distracted only by a few weeds left by her living second son,yet encouraged by the gift of rain from Heaven.

The neighbors get to pull weeds.
In the meantime the butterflies flutter by. Smile-Big   :D

Her garden continues to flower, just waiting for her to put on her hat and garden clothes and visit.

One interesting feature is an old wooden bench her husband used to rest on as Police Chief of his town.
When she moved in, I agreed to let it rest on the boundary between her and my yard, where she could see it every time she got her car out of her garage. It has a back, and anyone sitting on it can see the flowering garden in the front of her house.

Now she can sit on it with him while watching neighbors pull an ocassional really obnoxious weed.

Update
The house and yard remain occasionally visited, still flowering, but of course weedy. One sumac grew in front of a wall and obstructed the view, and passage in the adjoining sidewalk, prompting removal.

The house was the site of an Estate Sale over the past weekend. The best thing the agent did was to clean the front garden from weeds, which showed the thoughtfulness of the garden, full of fall flowers. Four blocks were full of cars coming and going, and our circle became a Loading Zone. The weather was pleasant cool and cloudless.

The surviving son continues to visit and brought his dog, putting her into the back yard. The dog escaped and got out front to have a look. She was so pleased she made instant friends with my dogs, the dog went inside, and claimed the house as her own--by barking at my dogs, of course.

The house sold to a young couple, and the wife simplified the flowers to a red variety, which looks great.
