Year 2002: I have recently gotten back into gardening after a few years hiatus, taken due to the demands of raising young children. I have a small home and yard in southeast Louisiana. I like cottage gardens and my garden reflects a relaxed and informal style. I like gardening for wildlife too and have several feeders, birdhouses, bird and butterfly plantings, and a small pond. I have a small patio and do containers as well. I LOVE garden structures such as birdbaths, gazing balls, and unique statues. My husband built me a potting bench which I painted and then a compost bin made out of old wooden pallets. Now he says he will build me an arbor. We plan to rent a sod-cutter soon and he will help me put in more beds and reduce the amount of lawn we have. What a man!

***UPDATE 2007*** DH did build a beautiful arbor and pergola. Arbor covered with climbing pinkie roses - awesome! In Aug 2005, all lost to Hurricane Katrina. Relocated to north MS, started from scratch in new home. Still love cottage gardens, wildlife gardening, and composting. I continue to find support and encouragement from GardenWeb. Thanks.
