About me

I was a designer with a Landscaping company, I kept up on the pictures (I included the Facebook link but I haven't been with the company since January), naming and tagging them, then I'd send a description of each plant to our clients so they'd know how to water and care properly. Sometimes if the instructions were a bit harder, I'd include a link to a site with flower information. I'd link them to our website (this is the second one, mine is gone). I did the first website and I worked on it tirelessly for about a year and a half and then constantly updating. It was a great site.

Current project

Planting on my porch, studying inside plants and their toxicity for animals. I'm waiting for my porch to start going wild. I'm also working on other projects, finding small antique wooden chairs, desks, etc and sanding them down and painting them. It's relaxing like my flowers.
