I am a dirty girl who is happiest when my hands are in the dirt. I guess that makes me a gardener.  I hope the experiences I share here will help you garden or entertain you, maybe both.  I’m located in the Mid-Atlantic region, and I guess I’m located in Zone 7.  Or maybe it’s 6b. I feel a post coming on . . . . .

I do a little vegetable gardening in a flowerbed next to my house. The rest of my half acre is a work in progress.  I’m a hopeless plant collector, so I have a lot of plants.  Some of my favorite shrubs are Itea virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet’ (sweetspire) and all manner of Viburnums.  I don’t think I could live without Oxydendrum arboreum, or Sourwood, and Cercis canadensis, or Redbud, trees.  Perennials?  Are you kidding?  The web’s not big enough for my list, but I’ll list my absolute favorites:  all manner of lilies, especiall orientals, Dicentra spectabilis (Bleeding Heart), Hosta in every shape and form, Heuchera in every shape and form, and pretty much any woodland plant. See, I told you I was hopeless.

So, come along for the gardening ride!
