Welcome to debra_boston's Member Page
I have several different gardens. My favorite garden is my perennial garden which faces the street on which we live. I began with nothing, fifteen years ago, and now have a 30 x 6 foot perennial border. In that border are: iris, sweet autumn clematis, peonies, tulips, lupins, potentilla, lillies, heliopsis, jacob’s ladder, marsh mallow, solomon’s seal, tansy, chives, alium, nasturtiums, shasta daisy, datura, lilacs, roses, monarda, liatris, yarrow, achilea,
echinacea, tall phlox, hardy geranium, evening primrose and coreopsis and probably a couple I missed. The hard part is also the best part--trying to have something in bloom from as early as possible to as late as possible. April to Nov.
I will add to this as time allows.
I’ve been using the Gardenweb Forums now for 3 years and everyone here is wonderful! I feel so much warmth and support and sense that other’s feel a real responsibility not only to the earth but bringing along the next generation of gardeners. I am 51, married with no children, but one kitty and work full time as a designer/space planner. This is a high-tech job with CAD work predominant. Being in nature and watching seeds and plants grow is almost the opposite of my "Dilbert" life! So I really enjoy getting my hands dirty, planting, watching things progress and going to plant swaps to get more! Happy growing.
