Ive enjoyed gardening since I was a little girl and truly wish I could spend more time doing it. However, one must work to pay the mortgage. We moved in 2003 from a city lot with terrible (yuck!)clay soil to .6 of an acre in the country with lovely sandy loam! However, it was an estate sale and most of the plants were either dead or overgrown beyond repair. So, weve been busy pruning, cutting and weeding to restore the yard and trees.

I also got 3 big lilacs that are just beautiful this last spring. With some creative pruning, I hope they will be even more beautiful in the future. As for the rest of the property, whew!!!!, a lot of work is beginning to show results.

I enjoy planting a veggie garden and the neighbors like the supply of fresh veggies. We have a beautiful yard just a few years of hard work!

Im married 16 years to a wonderful guy and have a 15 year old son (my garden partners). Im very positive about adoption because we wouldnt have our son without it and love to encourage others to consider adoption if they have room for a child in their lives.
