I have a fairly small garden, but it spreads faster every spring!
I love Violets (duh), Irises, Herbs, Cacti, really fragrant flowers like Gardenia, ANY really Exotic plants-like Bird of Paradise, Bleeding Heart, Passiflora, Orchid, Sundew.. the more exotic the better.

I am awed at all plants and flowers. God is amazing- from Alyssum to Zinnia, they are always perfect, down to the last pollen gram. Even their imperfections are perfect in their own way. They adapt to their handicaps- ever seen a tree grown through a fence? Or a root that broke a boulder?

I am a Christian, for all who care to know. I am NOT a religious lunatic. I will not go spouting You're-all-sinners-and-you're-going-to-hell messages, so relax. However, I am not ashamed of what I believe at all.

Although I am still a tiny bit new at gardening, and pretty young, I am blessed with a fairly strong "green thumb."
My other hobbies are sculpting, miniatures, journaling, drawing, painting, and pastels.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z9a TX
