I am a transplanted Yankee who starts wilting in June, who likes weeding in the rain (the neighbors think I am crazy) and exploring the woods behind my house. I have two indoor cats and a terrier mutt who tries to dig up what I plant, and a wonderful husband who lovingly gets into the spirit of my gardening endeavors, even if he does not initiate them. I am an English professor by occupation, who loves Cowper's The Task, a poem that celebrates gardens and quiet, domestic life: "Friends, books, a garden, and perhaps his pen, Delightful industry enjoyed at home, and nature in her cultivated trim Dressed to his taste, inviting him abroad--Can he want occupation who has these? Will he be idle who has much to enjoy?"
That pretty much shows you my life.

I live in: United States
