Gardening is my hobby, my joy, my escape, and also my main form of exercise. But I also see it as “decorating the outside of my home.” My garden has been evolving all my adult life, beginning with my mother’s backyard wildflower bed, and now spilling over to eliminate almost all of our lawn area. (In my opinion, grass is far less fun to maintain than a flower garden!) Here’s an example of what I mean in the front yard.

Front yard before and after

BEFORE: My kids, almost 30 years ago, in front of my humble bulb garden (inspired when a friend moved away in Fall of 1979 after ordering a huge shipment of bulbs which she bequeathed to me!)

AFTER: Front Garden 2008 after years of expansion! (My kids have also “expanded” right out of the house and no longer pose routinely for Easter photos in the garden!)

I have two adorable grandsons (who, same as gardening, are also my joy and a good form of exercise!) and they just may have inherited the gardening "bug"!
