I have been gardening for over twenty years. I enjoy puttering around the garden and looking for that special plant that's on my "plant list". When I lived in Southern California I had over a hundred Hybrid Teas and Old English roses and I served on the board of directors for the Santa Clarita Rose Society. I miss my roses. I haven't had much luck with them here in Georgia. My tastes in plants have changed over the years. I am drawn to tropicals, reds, yellows, and oranges. I especially like Alocasias because of their large foliage and anything that is scented. There isn't a lot that I don't like. I read anything and everything about gardening and watch way too much gardening tv. And I love to compost! Gardening brings me joy!
