Welcome to flowerfloosey's Member Page
I live in the beautiful Sierra Foothills of N. California. I am an avid gardener and maintain a large sweeping perennial bed all by myself.(my hubby helps a little and keeps up the lawn!) I have many struggles..including being situated at woodlands edge where Doe's have their Fawn's every summer. They sleep in my backyard all winter! I have terrible clay soil that I have spent years amending. I have learned a lot about what the deer will eat and what they won't...at least in my garden! I am currently "hooked" on wonderful foliage plants and especially like chartruse and "black" or purple plants.I also am learning about Sempervivums and just love the little rosette form and variation in colors that these plants offer. I still have a lot to learn so am happy to find this web site!Have been gardening all my adult life! I am 52 and just had a hip replacement this summer. Am looking forward to being out in my garden this Spring and Summer.My dog Sophie spends hours with me out in the garden and loves to play with the empty plastic pots I throw out on the grass from planting in my beds.
I live in: US
My zone is: z8 NCal mnts
