I like a variety of flowers. Im a single mom with two great older children..the adventures we go on , would probably amaze you.
Gardening gives me a breather...and is literally a passion of mine. I am also passionate about recycling and doing as much for the earth as we can. I garden organically, and love anything Heirloom with a history.
Even though I was raised by parents who gardened, and spent every summer picking the cherries, apples and other fruits from the small field of fruit trees mom and dad grew, I did not become a serious gardener until 16 years ago. Now my gardening has brought me and my mother closer.I like to trade for multiples because my mom gets part of everything I trade for . I absolutely love to make my mom smile by giving her a plant or flower. I have found gardeners to be the most unique grouping of human beings out there, generous and loving from the heart. Ive also met some real grouches though, hey nothing can be perfect.
My whole family is involved in Animal Rescue , ask us about it :o)
