passionate gardener (no!); former master gardener volunteer; daylily enthusiast; and aspiring novelist. I am totally, most certainly, quite positively not addicted to plants...addictions are things you need to get over...and, well, I have no intention of getting over plants! There!
I LOVE comments and want to take a moment to thank you for taking the time to post one. Please do not be offended if I don't respond right away...I will, hopefully, get back to you...before too long. Life gets busy and I don't always respond promptly. I do value your contribution, so thanks for coming over!

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed (preferably in my pajamas)

I appreciate the misunderstanding I have had with Nature over my perennial border. I think it is a flower garden; she thinks it is a meadow lacking grass, and tries to correct the error.
Sara Stein, My Weeds, 1988
No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.
