Life in Christian County,
This profusion of flowers grows at the Hopkinsville - Christian County Library in a block of soil, surrounded by a bench and the walls of the building. The bed used to have a nice little dogwood tree in it, but for some reason it was removed and some puny, pointy shrubs were planted instead. They looked forlorn last winter, but this summer, flowers have filled the empty space, and indeed, have nearly grown over the shrubs and bench.
On a Hopkinsville forum that I read, there's been occasional discussion about whether the library is good enough. Like most libraries, it does the best it can within budgetary constraints. When I moved here, I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the facility and the scope of the collection. I was used to military and small town libraries that were much more limited than this one.
