I am 55 single and have always loved gardens ..I lived in a 30’ RV for 5 years and got hooked on container gardening.
I still grow my flowers and veggies as well as vines and trees in pots. When they need to be moved to a different spot, I just slip my dolly under them and wa-la more sun or a shadier spot.
I have a wonderful little water garden in a old cedar trunk, complete with a trickle fountain.
Two years ago I became interested in Bonsai, especially the Japanesse maples and pines. I am also working on a "grove" of ginko biloba but my favorite project in my little wisteria.
I also love herbs, ground covers(mosses) and ornamental grasses. I also love to photograph all the flowers, trees and folage from sping clear thru winter.
I have now been hooked on garden web for some time and have to say my FAVORITE SITES ARE TIED between the two listed above not because of the subject matter but because of the wonderful people that hang out there I have met some of the locals in person and they’re awesome people and the Ones from ’ a fer piece down the road’ that I have talked are just as great!!!!!!
