I happened upon this site looking for plants that will do well in the San Diego area. My daughter just bought her first home there and since we are New York residents (Finger Lakes area) I would like to help her. I love gardening. I have a small English "cottage garden" in my front yard. Being a city dweller and garden novice I was inspired by a trip to England 4 years ago and enchanted by their fromt door gardens. I don't have much room or much sun but through trial and error and 3 year of planting it looks "somewhat o.k." I also like indoor gardening and gardening in containers. I am looking forward to further gardening adventures. I love to read, quilt, knit and am interested in learning to draw/paint. I love dogs, travel, antiques and textiles. I am fascinated by color and change my preferences often. I am a special ed. teacher who will retire in 2 years-then my second life begins! My husband and I have been married for over 30 years. Our older daughter Sarah is a naval Lt.(in San Diego) who will marry her college sweetheart, a first generation Chinese American next spring. Our younger daughter Julie is a college soph. and softball whiz. My dogs Katie and Jasmine are always a source of delight. I could talk forever but.....suffice it to say I enjoy working with troubled teens but look forward to doing all I have always wanted to do, including all of the above.

I live in: United States
