I’m a passionate gardener living in Seattle area, pacific Northwest, in growing zone 7. Once again I’m creating a garden and this time my yard is a shy acre.

Turning a yard into a garden is the human purest satisfaction. Even the God Almighty in the middle of the hassle of creating Adam and Eve, he first planted a paradise.

As a busy mom of two little girls, life can be hard sometimes. For me, gardening brings balance and deep satisfaction to it.

I found out that working together with nature have great powers of healing, which can benefit everyone of us. My mission is to spread this message as wide as possible.
