I am the owner of The Sample Seed Shop. I live in a suburb between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Summers are normally very nice here, and winters are generally snowy, but it is not the tundra. I really am in zone 6.
I wish I had known when we bought our house that I would become so obsessed with gardening. I would have bought more land. I am an organic gardener. I love growing roses, but I grow so many other shrubs, bulbs, perennials,tomatoes, and other fruits and vegetables too.
I am one of the hosts of the Buffalo-Niagara Tomato TasteFest Party. If you would like info on attending, please email me.
I am a Buffalo Botanical Garden member and a member of the Genesee Valley Rock Garden Society. I am also a volunteer for the Delaware Park Rose Garden. I have started a garden blog (see link at bottom of page,) where I plan to show pics through out the garden season.
Some other things I like to do are play pool, cook, write poetry but not the silly love kind, and bird watch.
On the computer, I am often worried about being misunderstood. In real life, I can be very talkative. When I do talk I am very expressive and use my hands a lot just like a short Italian woman should : )
I just cut this quote out of the paper and put it on my fridge,"A garden is a lifetime. The only way I will ever be finished is when I'mm dead." That was Oscar de la Renta. You never know who is a gardener!<
There was a request on the Antique Rose Forum to list the roses we grow on our profiles, so I decided to do that.(It seems all the photos of my roses no longer show up on here.)
