My husband Mike and I moved from Sonoma County Calif to Kaaawa, on the island of Oahu, HI in March of 2003. We live about 1 short block to the beach so the salt air is a problem with some of the new plants that I have introduced to my garden. I am now living in paradise and can grow almost anything, albeit I am getting used to lots of bug pests and things that are very hard to get rid of here. Such as, I have yet to grow a tomato that doesn't have a larvae of some sort in it! I refuse to use pesticides. We even bought a Mosquito Magnet to trap mosquitos and YES< it does work!

I have 5 indoor cats and they love to watch the dozens of birds that live in our garden, not to mention the geckos! I am forever rescuing geckos that come into the house from my ferocious hunter in the bunch, Fluffy. You can't get anything past that one. The others could care less. They are happy sunning themselves or just looking outside.

I love animals and nature, and am forever rescusing a baby bird or whatever since I am here in the country.

I live in: United States
