Comments / Questions

Kristin, thanks for all the good ideas you have given me! I especially love your stacking herb beds and picket-fenced garden area. The yard you have created is mind-blowing... you've combined the elements of design and color in a magical way. Congrats!!!

I enjoyed walking through your gardens. Your use of texture, heights and color are absolutely stunning.

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!

I am a great fan of hostas. Your collection is beautiful.

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.
