Welcome to janetgia's Member Page
Having abandoned my battles with trumpet vine and Silver Maple shoots following the floods of 2008, we moved in the fall to a new property that has challenges of its own but fortunately, no trumpet vine! I am finally making progress creating the walk-through garden I’ve always wanted. Starting with the lone existing perennial bed at the new place, I wisely tucked one of our sheds at the end of it to serve as the necessary 'cottage' for the 'cottage garden.' I’ve enlarged the flowerbed and added a curvature at the other end, and will be expanding it even more next year. I’ll also be adding some bean-shaped beds, one for roses and one for who-knows-what. All fronted by an annual-filled border and perhaps even a picket fence. This only covers a small fraction of our new property, which I love.
Family consists of DH, 15-year-old daughter, grown step-daughters, and young step-grandchildren, plus 2 cats and a dog.
We also love motorcycling, a hobby which competes for outdoor time with my gardening :) and I’m also a genealogist.
