I'm fascinated by everything, so I try to cram as many plants as possible into my wildlife-friendly cottage garden. "Cottage garden" sounds so much nicer than "messy garden," don't you think? I love learning, and I learn everywhere -- in the garden, online, from books, from other gardeners, in the checkout line at the grocery store. Writing articles and giving talks lets me share what I love. I've written over 100 articles for Dave's Garden and will continue writing here. I've given talks at plant society meetings and to kindergarten classes. It's all good!
