I was raised in the midwest, Wisconsin, Illinois and finally gave up the snow, ice and grey skies for Arizona where I have lived since 1984. Best decision I ever made.
I've always loved playing in the dirt but never had any luck with it back home, what with raising 3 kids alone and working 2 jobs when not taking college classes.
I recently moved away from my rose/perennial garden that I had spent 16 years creating and am now starting over and I have discovered that I love the planning and planting much more than I do the maintainance. I now have much more room on all 4 sides of my home and a wide variety of flowers, trees and plants. I love the trading/sharing of the fruits of my labor and have met some wonderful gardeners along the way.
Aside from my gardening, I am an independent volunteer for our County Hospital where I make hats and blankets for the newborns. Another task that makes my heart sing. Gardening and crocheting~my true loves.
Take a look at my plant list. I don't list anything that is not ready to be shared right now. If you see something that strikes you, even if you have nothing to exchange for it, ask, you'll get it.
So happy to be part of your community. Happy gardening to all.
