Hello fellow gardeners!!
We are located in the city of Canton OH, the home the Pro Football Hall Fame, which is just a stone's throw away from us! 👣👣
My gardening journey began in August of 2011, after resigning from my job as a Residential Building Designer. Being a busy two-income family, with two tween girls, at the time, our back yard was looking like the Munster's yard! I then decided to create a back yard "escape" from the loud mouth neighbors across the street. I've built a total of 10 perennial beds, on our small city lot, in just 5 years, and it's a work in progress. I find myself daydreaming about new plants and new gardens ALOT! Yard and garden work is my free therapy (well, not so free, but you know what I mean! 😉) I feel at one with nature and it brings me a sense of clarity and peace.
My Dad (God rest his soul) loved to putter around outside, and his lawn turf was always the envy of the neighborhood! As a kid, I would help him outside whenever I could! I would help him plant his annuals and veggies. So I sense that Dad is with me, when I'm outside, in the yard and gardens, and ironically, I joined this community on *Dad's birthday*! 💞💞💞
All of my projects are DIY with occasional help from the DH. His nickname around here is "Destruction" and mine is "Construction"! 😂😂
A quick word to the wise: Using the wrong garden tool and footwear with no support or traction can lead to stitches, a concussion, and yard/garden work that'll have to "wait 'til next year"!
As gardeners, we put in blood, sweat, & tears, and we sustain bee stings & injuries, but there's nothing more satisfying than the wondrous result of our labor! 💫✨💖✨💫
Happy Gardening, my Friends!!! 💞💞💞
