I am an artist. I’ve worked in advertising as an art director and still do from time to time. It’s a tough business, but then so is gardening. Anyone who’s planted a barberry bush or moved 5 yards of mulch knows this. I share my gardening ideas with Fine Gardening and HGTV from time to time so maybe my garden will look familiar. If you like my ideas feel free to say so. If you don’t, you can tell me you hate it. I have thick skin. Did I say I work in advertising?
I’ve gardened in the midwest for 5 decades. Zone 5/6. A few years ago I added a garden in Tampa. I am a total zone 9 rookie. It’s introduced a whole new level of thorns and pain. Not to worry. I am a gardener.
