Garden 337

A cottage garden in an urban setting

Crazy April 2023

The only survivor from a collection of trillium I bought at a garden shop in Glen Arbor, Michigan at least 10 years ago. But this lovely, whose name I have forgotten, has greeted my spring each year. It rests under the Kousa dogwood in the secret garden.

About Me

I haven’t always been a gardener, but I have always loved gardens. It has taken 16 years to get my gardens into the shape they are today. And, I’ve had help. I’m 74 years old, have rheumatoid arthritis, and had a late stage cancer six years ago. I am, though, intrepid. I’m the kind of person who plods along, tailoring my goals as I go. Last November I had a long overdue knee replacement surgery and I’m hoping this spring, summer, and fall will be able to maintain and find even more joy working in all of my garden beds. Full disclosure, though. I have a garden guy who comes once a week to work in my gardens.
