I know that to everything there is a season, but I’m a gardener and I start counting the days until spring the day after Christmas. I live and grow in Zone 5b where I care for my 175+ roses and their companions. I am the co host for Rose Chat Radio, a weekly podcast on roses. (You can find the archive of our podcasts here.)
Here are a few other things about me…
- I LOVE to dig in the dirt … dirt has an almost magical effect on me.
- I LOVE roses and get completely giddy when it is time for my roses to bloom in early June.
- And, I LOVE to create flower arrangements to share!
My very handy husband (the builder of fences, potting sheds, trellises, etc.) and I spend most of our free time tending our garden and caring for the birds, frogs and various other critters that join us.
We feel we are in great company because … “God almighty first planted a garden.” -Francis Bacon. Now the LORD God planted a garden in the east. …God took the Man and set him in the Garden of Eden to work the ground and keep it in order. Genesis 2
So, if you are interested in gardening, roses, flowers or if you find anything magical about dirt, I’d love to have you follow along.
