I love plants and flowers of all kinds, outside in one of my gardens is the place for me to be. Whether its with the flowers for butterflies or hummingbirds, or in the herbs with the busy little bee’s. Spring and Summer are my favorite times of the year. I have just started back doing my favorite thing, gardening, after a 2.5 year break. We lost our 12 year old son, Cole, on Christmas Day of 04 to an auto accident. Since then I have terribly neglected my gardens. I am living again and this spring and summer have really started putting my gardens back in order.
I have been married to the most wonderful man for 19 years and we have had 3 wonderful boys, 2 are still here on earth and one (Cole) is in Heaven.
I have a Love Garden that Coles friends made for me from the plants (more than 150 of them) from Coles funeral. They are all tropicals. I have lost several due to my negligence but still have several left and my LOVE Garden is the most beautiful thing in my yard. (I have added to it this year)
I still have to redo my butterfly and bee gardens as well as my water garden (cement pond, just not as big as the Beverly Hillybillys).
Working in my gardens has been very theraputic to me and give me solace, peace and comfort. I just wish I hadn’t neglected them so bad as to pretty much lose all my color and sunshine. But God smiles on us and smiles big through flowers.

And Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an Hour."
