The two mutts below are my miniature schnauzers, Zoe and Nick admiring my better side.

In 1996, I started gardening to spruce up the yard of a house we had just bought. Although our lot is only 75’W x 150’ L, we have strips of easement and buffer property on two sides giving the illusion of much more space. The gardens now encircle all four sides of my home. My favorite plants have interesting or variegated foliage and/or long periods of bloom. I try to design my borders with form and foliage texture more so than with flowers. I’m constantly trying different plant combos and new plant varieties.

To afford my gardening addiction, I work full time as an accounting geek-unfortunately a gig that takes up way too much of my time. In addition to gardening, I enjoy downhill skiing, reading, working out, entertaining and spending countless hours on-line at Gardenweb. The people I’ve met here and the friendships I’ve made are just icing on the cake.

I live in: United States
