I am a retired nurse, my husband retired real estate broker though our daughter is manager of our Property Mgmt. Co. We have a home 3/4's of the way down Baja on the Sea of Cortez side - that is a real challenge to plant. We are on a bay so though our dirt isn't bad - it is salty. We are only there 2 months at a time twice a year and irrigating in a desert doesn't make good sense - so I have limited myself severely to what can live. Our home is at the mouth of a canyon and we are in a grove of Mangrove trees so nature has provided me with her own beauty but I miss seeing flowers so am always seeing what I can get to grow wild.

Our home in S. Calif. has an acre of beautiful gardens, an orchard and we have ripped out our kitchen, laundry room and one bathroom to remodle are are nearly finished. I came to this site seeking information about which prof. range to install and to learn all I could. Thanks to the forums I now have a 60" Blue Star range in my new kitchen and LOVE it.

My interests include but are not limited to: gardening, flower arranging, building projects, interior decorating, cooking, baking. I love kayaking, boating, swimming, snorkeling, diving, rafting, hiking, scrapbooking, writing, singing, music, grandparenting, traveling, sewing, enjoy hot mineral spring waters and have a tiny log cabin built in the 1800's by mineral springs in Northern CA. I lease it but have loved and admired it for over 20 years.
