I am a wife and mother. I teach at our local university, and my favorite hobby is gardening. My husband is wonderful to help me with all my "projects" and has been known to move a plant numerous times before I find just the right spot for it and he doesn't complain! We have two ponds--a small one (about three feet by four feet) in our back yard and a large one (about 12 feet by 10 feet) in the front yard. I have several roses, most are old garden roses. We are slowly eliminating our lawn and creating more and more beds and paths. I love garden ornaments and am always on the look-out for something unique. We have several bird houses and bird baths in our yard and love watching the bird activity, including nesting and hatching of the babies.The winter is my least favorite season because everything looks so forlorn, but by this time of year, late winter, my spirits begin to lift as I see buds on the japanese quince and forsythia bushes, and begin to have some days that are warm enough to "play in the yard."
