Hello fellow gardeners!!
We are located in the city of Canton OH, the home the Pro Football Hall Fame!
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 resembling the Munsters' yard! I then decided to create a back yard "escape", and I've built a total of 10 perennial beds on our small city lot in just 5 years, but, as you're all aware, it continues to be a work in progress. I discovered yard and garden work to be 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 the envy of the neighborhood! I feel that Dad is always 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 can lead to a concussion and yard/garden work that'll have to wait 'til next year! (Note to self!)
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!! 💝💝
My life philosophy: The "grass" is only greener where it's watered and fertilized😃
Happy Gardening!!! 💞💞💞
