This week's article takes a peak at the inside of our gardens. Would you describe yourself as being a whimsical gardener, or more traditional?

Mine started out traditional, then I realized that it's not too traditional to try & do an English-style rose garden in the middle of the rocky mountains. So, while my main gardening is roses, it's also a very xeric (roses /=/ xeric) garden... and I'm always willing to push the envelope as to what will grow versus what I can TRY to grow. LOL.. which means I end up digging up a lot of dead things.
Roses are one of my passions! Just opened, my Etsy shop (to fund my rose hobby)!

Toni- I completely understand!

Even though we've been in TX for many years, I still try to grow things that aren't really suited to my area.

I also live vicariously through the pictures!!
