I started gardening about 8 years ago when I got married. We bought a new house 5 years ago and dug our second pond. It is about 3,000 gallons and we have several large koi and lots of baby koi. We have them trained to eat from your hand and they think that they always need fed! We also have lots of frogs and have our first green frog tadpoles last year. We have a large vegetable and herb garden and have been working on expanding several flower beds. We enjoy spending our evenings with our two dogs sitting by the pond watching the fish and the frogs.
I am married, and have a beautiful 3 year old daughter. She loves to "help" me in the gardens! We also have two dogs who are our babies! They just love to be outside with us and are very good at digging holes. If only I could get them trained to dig in the right spots!
I am a registered nurse and spent several years working in the ICU. Right now I am working part time on the cardiac floor in our local hospital. I have loved having the extra time to work on my flower beds and have become addicted to this plant trading! lol.
I started collecting daylilies and hostas a couple years ago and also have a large vegetable and herb garden. I am always looking for different varieties of mints and other unusual herbs. We have a lot of shade in our backyard and I am esp. looking for colorful shade plants. We do have several flower beds in full sun though also, so I try to fill them with lots of colorful perennials.
I have loved getting to know the people here on GW and have made some wonderful new friends. Happy Gardening!!
