About me

I've been gardening for the last 13 years. I love all plants, but especially anything that will attract butterflies, birds, and moths. I am really into caterpillars.

Current project

I bought a house a year ago, so I've got lots of them. Planting a wildlife habitat, while also making room for veggies, is my main concern.

Type of gardener


Favorite garden activity

watching the birds

Cool owl picture!! I lived in Austin for 10 years, and we had a pair of screech owls living in a tree next to our house... so cool! Good luck with the new place and please share your garden adventures with us!
