      Thanks! I have learned a lot through trial and error, reading gobs of gardening books, and getting some training in gardening, so it’s taken a while to reach this point, but it’s been a lot of fun. Also, my tastes have changed over time, and so has the garden as a result.

      Hey–great minds think alike! I will try to sit back a bit–supposed to hit the 90s this weekend, and I hope to get a chance to barbecue out back if at all possible.

    Wow! You’ve been WORKING…..the end results are remarkable. We are so lucky, here in the PNW, to be able to grow the variety of plants that we can but you have, also, skillfully combined them and they look loved and well tended. It is fun to look at before photos and see how our garden changes but I don’t think we are ever completly satisfied, atleast I never am.

      I feel that way, too, sometimes. I’m always getting new ideas and trying new things out in the garden–it keeps it fun!
