Gardening:  Mary Rae Fouts, EA

I love to garden.  I garden organically - flowers, seasonal vegetables and herbs, shrubs, and fruit and nut trees - and try to create various garden areas that are bird, bee, critter, and dog friendly.  I am an avid composter, and use recycled water to water my gardens during the dry months in my Mediterranean climate.  My plantings change throughout the year, but must haves include various types of peppers and basil during warmer months.  And I do love my roses.  These photos provide a peek into some of my past garden adventures.  Happy Gardening, Everyone!
Just in case you are wondering ... the above photo is an awesome honey bee swarm that hung out in my backyard on a cedar redwood tree branch for about 20 hours.  A truly spectacular sight.
