I lived in Hollywood for a year or so in 1990... and had a plot in Wattles
Garden right down the street on Hollywood Blvd and a wonderful flower
garden on my back stoop - I still recall fondly the way everything thrived

they felt they should pay me for creating such an area of beauty back

In particular the celosia were just stunning. The ones we have here are
tiny and stay that way.
