Ilse and her husband , Gary, were my wonderful neighbors for over 20 years. Gary loved music and Ilse's pride and joy was her garden. I still have some plants in my backyard because of her advise. Ilse was meticulous with her garden and only recently had a gardener do the work she always did by herself. It was "perfection" even though the yard space was limited it looked like a miniature "Hampton Court". I love gardens too but my heart is always with wildlife. I put squirrel houses in my Oak tree and along with free housing, the squirrels were kept very chubby with nuts! One day Ilse came to my yard and saw my sign "Wildlife Sanctuary" She immediately commented: "So it is "you" who is causing those squirrels to bury nuts in my front lawn!" I looked at Ilse sheepishly and replied: "Well I will inform them to keep out of your yard!" I forget her reply but she knew the culprit was not about to quit. We stayed good neighbors for all these years and we exchanged goodies during the holidays. Rest in Peace Dear Ilse. I will always have fond memories of you as a very dear neighbor throughout my life.
