Claiming he lives "in a garden with a house attached to it," Jim Handtmann
of Minneapolis transformed every inch of his small ordinary yard into a series
of distinct, magical places to unwind.
Starting in the backyard several years ago, Jim's garden moved to the sides
and front of his home, then across the sidewalk into the little, often-neglected
strip at curbside. The flower-filled boulevard garden has caused a turnaround
in his neighborhood, changing it from a declining, impersonal atmosphere
to one of activity and caring.
