    Earth Laughs In Flowers

    I recently moved into a new home(renting) and there were dreary little stunted plants that didn't grow or bloom or anything. I tried to resist pulling them up but they did not seem to have any redeeming qualities. When I pulled them they had hardly even put any roots down.  ...

    I Am Trying

    This Spring I planted two rose bushes.  I think they are called Queen Elizabeths.  I got a couple of blooms this year.  I hope it gets better next year. That is all of my garden.  I will plant some more next year.

    Flowers of Demented Dreamgarden

    Here are a few of my hollyhocks. They are special to my heart. Each morning I go out with my cup of coffee and greet the blooms of the new day. I photograph and love them. Pluck bugs off them. Sniff and smell them. Plant hundreds of them. One for me and one for the snails and...

    I Love My Gardens Too.

    I love gardening and fortunately I live in the banana belt of Canada so I can grow a large variety of plants. There are a few photos of my garden in my photos section. I also take care of other peoples gardens for a living. Cheers!
