Hello! I am so excited to talk gardening with other people who are a passionate about it as I am. I am a stay-at-home mom of four great kids. I am luck enough to not only raise flowers and veggies, but I get to raise my kids too. My husband is a High School teacher and is also the head football coach.(Back- to -Back State 5A Champions) Yes, I am very proud of him! We have a great life.Gardening soothes my soul and brings joy to my heart. My garden is always changing and evolving. I am in my third season here at our home. When we bought our house the only thing in the yard was weeds and dog poop. I am very happy how things are coming together. I hope that in your life you always take time to smell the roses and listen to the birds!!!
