Home and Garden
This page features different shots around the yard and will give you an idea of what else goes on here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
While Daylilies are a big part of my life...and much energy is spent on them....they are not my only love. I planted my first tree when I was 6 years old...a colorado blue spruce that I paid $1 for....and it still thrives on my property today...and is nearly 50 feet tall...I live in the house that my parents owned when I was born...it was built in 1834.
