I've been gardening all my life, since the first plant I bought for my Mom at the age of 5. Nothing restores me as being in my garden. If I'm sick, if I'm sad, if I'm sore: there is nothing that isn't made better by being out there watching things grow.
My garden is more about 3 season color and form than about flowers. I am an artist and the garden makes a canvas that is never finished; and I like the fact that nature is helping me create it.
