Join me for tips, ideas, and progress in my suburban Colorado garden, including perennials, annuals, veggies, pests, design considerations (hello, privacy from the 18 houses around us, anyone?) and whatever else comes up-no pun intended! Continue reading It Lives Again!
Right now I am: Watching: Nothing. The TV doesn’t usually turn on during the day, and I’m nowhere near it anyway.
