Current project

I am working on two huge gardening projects concurrently. In front of my mountain home I am creating a grandchildren-friendly Fairy Garden. The Fairy Garden is bright and sunny with a wonderful southern exposure. Deep into our five acre wooded parcel I am planting an area which I've dubbed Dragonfly Forest. This spot is dappled shade and I'm using mostly natives and other woodland plants that will naturalize.

Type of gardener

Avid landscape gardener

Favorite garden activity

I love the concept of your Fairy Garden, what a mystical and magical idea as gardens often are mystical and magical:) Dragonfly's are great, they eat there weight in mosquito's!
