I am very much in my element when I am outside in warmer climates creating/designing gardens. I love designing and building with stone. The work helps me stay strong physically and mentally (in addition to my indoor workouts!). I was able to further my gardening skills and knowledge in some amazing gardens with a horticulturist in CT, in soil amending, environmentally safe pest and plant disease control, all kinds of annuals, perennials, deciduous and coniferous species and their safe zones.
