About me

I've been gardening for many years. I have an English cottage garden in my front and side yard. My hubby wants a Japanese garden in the back yard, which I'm not so sure about, but we'll see. I'm crazy about roses, lavender and mixing pots into my landscape. I use no chemicals and rely on plant selection, natural remedies and birds for pest control.
