My husband loves plants(bushes) for landscaping....I have always wanted to try flower gardening. When I made my new beds I told him they were mine.... spring/ summer 2002 gardening season I planted 65 varieties I had never tried!!!! Beginners luck, perhaps, but the garden was beautiful.

July 2002 Update..We just finished adding more beds that I will till and get ready for fall/spring. I now have 2000 sq feet of beds in my back yard!! Two of the beds I planted in spring are absolutely beautiful-even my husband goes out and just looks around! I think I have a convert to flowers!!

November 2002...I have finished preparing my new beds for planting. And , as luck would have it when I went to Lowes to find lime they were clearancing off their plants!! I purchased about 10 more varieties I have never tried, so next spring summer will be another adventure.

August 03...Oh, how I love gardening. I am running out of space again!!!! three of my beds are beautiful even in this heat. One is finished!! I am looking at it and planning changes!
fall 06.. reworked beds... made major changes, and I am looking forward to seeing how it looks in 2007
