It has been two years since I started writing this blog and it has brought more enjoyment to my life than I could have possibly imagined. My love of gardening goes back as far as when I was five years old, growing marigolds in pretty planters on our old brick barbecue in the backyard, and possessing a love to dig in the soil with my toy shovel. I guess that is where it all started. I have always had a passion for anything green and realized by 1996 that I should make this passion more than just a hobby. With the encouragement of family and friends I went back to school, furthered my education and started up a landscape design business. Now I can share my lifelong passion and enjoy working with others and their gardens...who could ask for more! After seeing the movie "Julia and Julie" in 2009 I set out on the Internet on a quest for garden blogs and was surprised to find a whole new world out there. I wondered if I wrote about gardening if anyone would come to read it so I started "A Guide To Northeastern Gardening" February of 2010. Since then I have met a wealth of garden blogging friends who are such a joy to know and share ideas with. I can say that blogging has truly enriched my life. To celebrate two years of blogging here are some of my favorite gardening photos that I would like to share. I hope you enjoy them!

I hope you continue to stop by and visit and share your love of gardening with me. It has truly been a pleasure and I love hearing your comments and reading about your ongoing gardening adventures. One could say that garden blogging is "chicken soup for the soul!"
As Always...Happy Gardening!
