A few summers during college, I worked in the horticulture industry and had the pleasure of being in some of the most beautiful gardens in town (and picked up a botany minor on the way). The last few years, I have been drawn to lower maintainence plants like ornamental grasses and shrubs. Current collections include: rusty garden art, Viburnums, garden books on many topics, grasses, unusual trees and shrubs, mismatched cheap gloves, Bergenias, and rocks of all sizes. The Master Gardener class opened my eyes to the importance of sharing gardening with others.
Housing update: We are settled into our new abode near Hillside Drive and DeArmoun in the mid-Hillside area of town. One acre of garden potential-yay! And an acre of grass to mow, meanwhile-boo!
Even more recent housing update: We are still settled two years later. I really must work on developing a garden that includes more than a dozen pots on the porch!
Garden task I love: planting containers
Garden task I dread: anything involving close contact with rose bushes...there will be blood!
