I live in the same hometown as Thomas Jefferson. I love to be outdoors in my garden.

Over the years I've gotten away from planting annuals and moved more to the perenials, simply because I'm a bit lazy and don't like to plant annuals every year. Of course, I do have some annuals that reseed and I always buy a few things that I put in each year for color.

I also like water gardening and have had small ponds for approximately 20 years. About three or four years ago my good friend had a professional put in a beautiful pond so, being the competitive friends that we are, I had one put in too. We have, over the years shared plants, ideas and even boarded our fish at one another's ponds for various reasons. Before I put my big pond in my fish had gotten too large for the pond and I even lost a few from lack of oxygen. They visited my neighbor for about a year until I got a larger pond.

Anyway, we both garden as much as we possibly can and enjoy all aspects of gardening. We don't specialize in any particular area but "dabble" in a lot of areas of gardening. Mainly we just love the beauty of plants and flowers and the little hummingbirds and butterflies the flowers attract.
