ADVANCE FOR THE WEEKEND - A dahlia blooms in Alan Love's backyard garden in Juneau, Alaska, Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015. Four years ago, Juneau resident Alan Love took the gravel-covered backyard of his new home in the Mendenhall Valley, close to Riverbend Elementary School, and turned it into a picturesque garden. He said the previous owner had been fighting a losing battle with moss in the back, hence the gravel, but Love saw the gardening potential of the fenced-in plot. (Michael Penn/Juneau Empire via AP)
