    I Like Watching the Before ...

    I like watching the before and after.   Before: It could be all crappy with half walls here and no plants whatsoever. No seats to sit in, no grass healthy enough to walk in and be comfortable. After: It could be stone walls and beautiful and exotic flowers here and there...

    I really love looking at different types of

    gardens and landscapes around a home. I purchase the magazine that describes and shows different types of gardens and landscapes. Many are large and others are smaller.

    I have a dream of designing my own small garden of herbs and spices. I would love to go out into my backyard and be able to smell them. I need a lot of experience before that will happen the way I would like it to.

    I would love to garden my own backyard someday.

    Where my dog can run around and we could play all day. Where my hubby would be sipping his morning coffee and children playing with us.
