What inspired you to create your garden?
I grew up being out doors most of my time and discovering what nature has to offer. I'm from a big family and my parents always had a vegetable and flower garden, as well as their families. i garden now for spiritual, mental and physical therapy. :)

My garden is most of my yard, front and back. I have lots of native shrubs, perennials and trees.
