I have gardened for many years and started adding roses a few years ago. I have gardens with roses, instead of rose gardens. I like the cottage look. I have 4 separate garden areas or "rooms". Plus a few more small garden areas tucked in here and there. One of my most favorite parts of the garden is the koi pond. I love my fish!

I have more big gardening plans! A rose tunnel is my next dream.

Other plants I grow and love include daylilies, irises, salvias, hardy geraniums and many other cottagey-type flowers.
