I love any type of gardening....most of my bushes & trees are to entice birds & butterflies into the yard. So, over the years I've added a Cockspur Hawthorne tree, service berry bushes, several types of Viburnum and High bush cranberry bushes.
Although I have perennial veggies ~ I probably won't be putting in a garden this year. I'm clearing out my house & looking for a new place in northern Minnesota. Am so ready to sell the current house & move on with life....
My day is not complete until needle, thread & fabric meet!!

Gardening is my passion. However, now that we are snowbirds it is limited.
We leave our AZ house in two weeks. All our plants will spend summer on a drip system and hopefully survive.
In MN we have lots of wildflowers, and perennials. Also, perennial veggies. I used to plant tomatoes but found they ripened after we left in the fall.
When I buy perennials I buy those that bloom Jun - Aug. No spring ro fall bloomers for us...
Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.
5'3" - I shrunk from 5'4" Summer: Minesota Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)
Personal goal is to weigh in 149 by the end of March 2015. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THIS GOAL IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2015 to be back to below 150 by January 2015.
current weight: 161.4
