I live on some heavily wooded acres on one of the islands off of the coast of Washington. Sunlight is always an issue here in our clearing. I am trying to live companionably with the wildlife here, as I want gardening to be enjoyable, not a battle. For the past ten years, my love and appreciation for the beauty and strength of daylilies has steadily grown. It reached new heights this summer after discovering the passionate "world" of daylilies out there beyond my zone. I am currently replacing much of my garden with them. I also love and grow iris, especially bearded and Japanese, columbine, primrose, roses, and sedums, and I love many many other things which I can’t seem to keep. My daughters have started their own gardens, and I love their individual choices and enthusiasm. We share our home with lots of pets, and feel very fortunate gardening here in the mild Pacific Northwest.

I live in: United States
