A garden is good for the body and soul.
I live in Louisiana (zone 8b) and have been gardening in Covington since 1976, but I have really only done this seriously for the last 20 years – after child started high school, and I had more time. I come from a long line of gardeners and have many plants from relatives. In fact, I often refer to my garden as “Passalong Gardens” because most of my plants have not been purchased but given to me by generous family and friends. It is nice to walk by all the plants and remember the people who have shared with me.
Over the years, my garden has slowly evolved. Tall pine trees dominate our property, but as some have had to be removed or fallen down (Hurricane Katrina removed several trees) more sun has allowed me to move from a shady garden to one with areas of sun and blooming plants.
I called this blog Always Growing because 1) I am literally growing things and always puttering around the garden, and 2) I am growing as a gardener and person.
INTEREST: Gardening, reading, yoga, birding, spiritual growth, cooking, anything Irish, nature, cats, and now photography.
