Our lot is not very big, 50 x 200. Mixture of sun and shade. We started with a blank slate 11 years ago, together my husband & I have planted and built what you see today. It is always a work in progress!

"Your yard is absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I have recently retired and are currently working on indoor home renovation projects, but your yard will definitely serve as an inspiration for us when we begin working outside on our yards. We're re-entering gardening - we both work in our gardens and yards at home growing up and we miss it terribly. We're looking forward to finally having the time to devote to it. I wanted to ask you approximately how much time you and your hubby devote to your yard and where you get you inspiration? "

"Your garden is just beautiful -- and to think we both started with a blank slate at about the same time! You've got a great mix of color and texture, and I love all the use you've made of wooden structures for height and interest. You've done a fabulous job -- and I'll bet your yard is the envy of the neighborhood! Another inspired vote from me! "

"Beautiful garden. I'm usually not a fan of artsy things in the garden but I like all of your stuff - very tasteful. Nice pathways and big, overflowing borders. Not used to seeing so much green but it looks great. What state are you in? I'm guessing you get summer rain."

"Love your yard and gardens. I want to walk around your gardens and just look at all the healthy, happy plants! U know what you mean "work in progress", mine is a constant work in progress too! Lots of hard work but well worth it - I know you enoy it - and it shows. Thanks for sharing."
