I live on a farm in Middle TN. and I guess you would call me a plant-a-holic. I love plants, all plants, wild plants, house plants, garden plants, anything green, blooming and growing. I want one or two of everything I see or read about. Playing in the dirt is good therapy for me. I compost and, with all the farm animals, use organic fertilizer on all my plants.
I have a dozen or so peafowl, 3 dogs, 2 cats, chickens, ducks, cows, turkeys and TN Walking horses. I'm the only person in the neighborhood who puts fences around my plants instead of the critters. The chickens love it when I try to start a new flowerbed! I have just started a waterlilly pond in the yard this summer, because the cows kept eating them in the farm ponds, guess they thought it was a salad bar. I have a 100 ft greenhouse, finally got all the poly back on it after the bull, with horns, ripped it to shreds. Aren't animals fun!!
I do a lot of my plant 'shopping' on the sides of the roads and in the woods. I like plants that are unusual in growth habits and things not everyone else has.
Would like to exchange plants or seeds that I have or just chat. Plese feel free to email me anytime.
My astrological sign is Capricorn and it truly describes me. I love my home and happiness is truly found in ones own back yard!
