About Dee

Gardening Is My Passion

Gardening is my favorite thing..it’s definitely a passion for me! My husband and children claim they can always find me “playing” in my garden. With a middle name like “Ivy” it seems a bit of destiny in the making, don’t you think? 😉

I started gardening at a very young age. My mother believed in growing as much of our food as we possibly could. We grew up on a small farm and I used to love spending hours in the garden with my family as a youngster and I never outgrew the love passed on from such a simple pleasure. We grew everything from vegetables, fruits, berries, rhubarb and more!  Some of my favorite memories come from our home garden. Mom always made it enjoyable where most times she would let us eat as much or more than we picked!

My mother had the most beautiful flowers too! She taught me how to appreciate all gardens, including our vegetable garden as well as our wonderful herb garden to container gardening as well as how to manage the constantly changing perennial beds in spite of the weather. I remember weeding in the warm spring rains, such a beautiful time to weed. Yes, gardening is a passion of mine. It’s a great hobby and for me it’s more…so much more because it also works my body and heals my spirit.
