To help celebrate National Garden Month 2006, we've invited our visitors to share their garden tales with us. We hope you'll find inspiration in their stories and appreciate the pride of your fellow gardeners.
For 14 years I lived in San Diego with a backyard that was just a concrete patio with a pool and only a tiny front yard. Other than my tending my houseplants, I did very little gardening. Then three years ago my family and I moved back home to Kansas, bought a house with 3 1/2 acres and all that wide open space brought out the latent gardener in me! I started with a long strip of bare earth at the top of a rock wall, at the back of of our house and planted, planted, planted! Now there are flowers and herbs that attract butterflies and hummingbirds and give me a real sense of joy.
