Of all the spots in my garden, this one makes me proudest. Ironically, it's one I've given the least thought to. Still, the combination of hosta, calladium, and elephant ear looks nice and balanced here, at least for now.

The other beds are puttering along. Several failures in the center bed have left a big gap and I'm not sure how to fill them in yet. The violets are fading out and some of the other things are struggling, so we may need some happy, hardy late summer variety here. A couple weekends of travel loom, however, so we may not see resolution soon.

Meanwhile, efforts to find a home soil test kit have proved, well, soggy.
