I live in RI and love my home and the area I live in. I am a perennial gardener. I collect seeds, seedlings, some bulds and also rescue discarded plants. My garden grew from a small area around my mail box which eventually became a four sided border around my front yard. There is something flowering from spring to fall. Over crowding is never a problem, I have a good size back yard and friends for sharing.
Favorite area of home improvement:
I recently had a new galley kitchen put in - I designed myself and made use of every nook and crany. The basement living area finished and exits onto an ugly patio. I am looking for inexpensive ways to up date it and make a more pleasant and useful place to be in. Another project I need to get to very soon is to set up two raised vegetable bed. I have a fifty year old Burning Bush in the back yard where I hang asorted bird houses. Water and seed is available for both birds & squirrels . Someday I want to have a pond, for frogs, turtles and fish - with a small water fall. I never feel like I need a vacation - my favorite place to be is HOME.
