Gardening started as a casual interest in my early life, later became a great form of emotional therapy and physical exercise, and is now a full-blown passion. I used to tell my husband that gardening was cheaper than therapy, but he no longer believes that! Gardening is also a form of worship for me, as a Christian - what the Lord has created is just stunning in its complexity and beauty, and being the steward of a small part of His creation is a privilege and a pleasure.____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
I live near Syracuse, New York.
I prefer to garden organically. I love daylilies, peonies, spring bulbs, historic tall bearded irises and lilacs. Bird-watching is a part of my gardening pleasure, so I have some plantings to attract birds.
I’ve started hybridizing my own daylilies, thanks to the encouragement of my GW Daylily Forum friends. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
