I’m grateful to have had a hedge of red torch ginger surrounding the house, and clumpy zoysia grass in the mix. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes in our large driveway and sometimes “off-roading” it in the two-acre yard. To the right of the front porch is a large night-blooming-jasmine bush and I can remember how sweet the air smelled in those cool Kula evenings. Finally, I was always grateful Jamey let me paint the front door red! It gave the house a warm cozy feel and it looked sharp with those torch ginger in the foreground!
