Take a Step in the Gardens...
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.

Well today was the last day of school for me!!! YEA!!! Now I can play in the flowers all I want. I hate to be inside when it is nice. But this heat is keeping me in more than I want. But I will get out there as soon as the sun goes down a bit! I haven't taken any pictures today but I did find a closeup of the Comfrey from last year.
Here is a closeup of the Comfrey I posted earlier. For such a large plant it has tiny dainty flowers.
I live in North Central West Virginia, I am 57 years old and have been married to the same wonderful man for 38 years, we have 2 beautiful daughters and a new son-in-law and 2 dogs.
I love to grow things, lots of things. But most of all I love flowers. Spring can't come too soon for me each year. I usually start planting and propagating in early February. Just so I can play in some soil. This is a great outlet for me.
I was also a Tole and Decorative Painting teacher for 27 years. I had artwork featured at the Whitehouse, Smithsonian,and the Blairhouse in Washington,DC.
In 2004 I was invited for dinner at the Whitehouse with the other artists featured at Christmas. It was amazing.
