What inspired you to create your garden?
My friend gave me the rugosa roses because I wanted flowers that smelled good. I grow milk weed because the neighbors don't like it and because we cut down/kill too much stuff (the milk weed is not where the neighbors can see it). The violets are all volunteer in a wooded area.
