I have to look at my Audubon map again, but I am pretty sure I don't get Mockingbirds here. I'm working on selling some of my thousands of blooms right out of the garden to save for nature trips! I am opening it to the public starting this Spring first. I really want to share the beauty more than anything. There are very few garden groups here, and a demand for organic flowers though. It would be wonderful helping people choose bouquets for their homes, and would give me a little extra income. I cut as many as I can for my 2 Daughters that live here, but so many go over with just me and myself watching the change, I am excited about welcoming people into my garden. Can't get fresher than choosing what you would like, and of coarse my prices will be so much less than the florists and so much more value. I love your choice of color and design in your lovely space. Isn't it a great feeling to create so much beauty and life? Happy end of Winter rest ~ and Sunny days ahead, Marian
Hi, Mim. I'm glad to have you as a friend on GS. I enjoyed looking at your gardens and especially love all your daylilies and hostas. My hostas here in NC have really suffered this summer in the brutal heat. I have to keep them contained to areas that I water daily.
"I hear you, Lynda, regarding getting out in the garden whenever you can. Sorry to hear you are dealing with some health issues but it looks like you don't let that get in the way of creating beauty in your garden."
"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."
"Well, you are lucky that your husband enjoys gardening with you. My husband keeps telling me that I'm never finished and he's right; I will continue to add beds because I enjoy lush landscapes. Living in Oklahoma is tough…"
