Garening saved my life. After many stressful years, I finally have a home on a half-acre with many mature trees, shrubs, and shade. If I could not garden, I would be a very unhappy person. I love to grow vegetables (in containers this year) and they usually do well, and this year I am including herbs, flowering plants, a few annuals, and beginning to teach myself about landscaping. My project this year is to start a small oriental-style garden in one corner. I collect old terracotta pots with flaws and paint them in bright colors to use or give away. I also have some luck with bulbs - calladia and lillies. My yard - when I moved in - was a tangle with good bones. I am in the process of cleaning out the junk and saving the good specimens from choking ivy and other vines.
