Thought it was time to update this!

My mother, grandmothers, and mother-in-law always had beautiful gardens, so that’s what I remember from growing up. Unfortunately, each has had to let her garden go as she’s aged (or moved), so I am "on my own" with this gardening bug! I suppose I am trying to recreate those gardens a little with my own touches, of course! :)

I am interested in lots of flowers... sort of an ’old fashioned’ garden, as you can see by my "want" lists. I like plants that form clumps and increase in size each year. I’m more of a perennial person, but I like it all! Especially if it can survive in clay soil, since ours is very clay and not-yet amended!

A full-time job and family really limits my free time, but I’m determined not to let that get in my way too much when it comes to gardening. If I’m ever a little slow when it comes to responses, etc... I apologize. I try to be prompt, and I hope you all will understand!

Thank you to everyone who has been so generous toward me so far! I look forward to chatting with all of you in the future! Please don’t hesitate to email me anytime! Happy Gardening, and Welcome Spring! =)
