I am a 62yo divorced female with 2 adult daughters, a son-in-law and three granddaughters. I also have a dog and three cats. I bought a new home eight years ago that sits on over an acre of land. There was no landscaping or vegetation on the lot except for a little grass right around the house and lots of weeds. (It used to be a pasture/farm). I love to garden, however, and it has been like a blank canvas to an artist! Over the past years I have put in dozens of large trees for the backbone, along with hundreds of shrubs and thousands of perennials, with a few annuals thrown in each year. I developed a formal rose garden with a pergola and lots of perennial beds, a small pond/water garden and a large pond full of plants, fish and frogs, a large vegetable garden, a very large fruit orchard, many, many beds of flowers and grasses and shrubs, etc. everywhere, and my plot of land has been certified as a natural wildlife habitat as I have planned everything for birds, etc. I love these forums and learn much from everyone else.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z7 NC
