"Lovely yard, lovely flowers. Not surprisingly, we grow many of the same plants -- you're problably in zone 6, too, am I right? You have my vote!"

"Hi! I read your comment to visit your garden and yes it is truly inspiring. The flowers are stunning. I often wish my region/zone (Zone 10/South Florida) would allow for the flower choices of the North. South Florida is so hot and humid that our choices are somewhat limited. I have recently been purchasing different flowering plants on-line in order to test and see if they will survive the heat here. I am finding that Day Lilies seem to do well and have found some Irises that also thrive. "
