2005 was my first year gardening and it has been a wonderful year. The people I’ve met here on GW are the greatest, without your help I would have never been able to do the things I have.
I love growing roses and am now getting into companion plants. The problem with that is finding dwarf/small varieties as I live in the country and sometimes the wind is ferocious and knocks down anything it can. (I have seen a neighbor’s lawn chair go by my house and he lives 3/4 of a mile away. LOL)
I’ve gone with an angel and cherub theme thru out my gardens and am amazed at all the different ones available.
I have about a 1/2 acre of yard to play with and just getting started means I have lots left to do. People keep saying "Wow, that’s a lot of hard work"..I tell them that they don’t get it...it’s not work, it’s therapy, relaxation and a sense of sastisfaction when it all comes together. Doesn’t work..they still think I’m nuts. LOL
