Gardening and flowers are my passion. I inherited my love for them from both sides of my family. I am inspired by working in the soil, caring for plants and creating beautiful spaces. Gardening relaxes me. I find peace from my hectic life performing tasks that take on a meditative quality. Gardening uplifts me. The exercise, fresh air and soil properties raise my spirits and energize me. I am a better person for the time I spend in my garden.
