Thanks Karen and Veronica!! It has truly been a work of love!!! We started the gardens in 1995 and lost our middle child in 1997. 8 days after she gave birth to her 2nd child. So to me I have worked out a lot of anguish there and have come to the peace that God always knows best. Time began in the garden.

Thanks Vickie!!! I hadn't realized until I put together the info for this article how many different palms I have in the garden and how much they have grown in the 16 years of the gardens existence.
