  A note from Cville_Gardener:  
"A West Coaster for 40 years, I now live in beautiful Tennessee. My property backs up to acres of woods and is a Certified Wildlife Habitat, Certified Pollinator Habitat, and registered Monarch Waystation. I'm a wildlife lover, an animal welfare advocate, and an environmental proponent.

Childhood summers were spent on my grandparents' farm where my grandfather raised large vegetable gardens that produced the best tomatoes I've ever eaten. My grandmother canned and preserved the bountiful harvest. She also planted the bank below the upper garden with vivid creeping phlox that I can still see clearly in my mind's eye. On that farm, I learned to love gardening and simple things.

I have a degree in History, a Master's in Behavioral Science, and have been a teaching assistant, crisis counselor and court victim advocate.

I've written for several websites. Container gardens, succulents, small space gardening, and wildflowers are favorite topics. I write about the joys, challenges, and surprises I've experienced gardening in a variety of climates over a number of decades.

Wanderlust has taken me to Israel, England, France, Russia, Chernobyl, Ukraine, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, Belize, El Salvador, and through the Panama Canal. I've climbed ancient Mayan ruins, hiked the Ein Gedi wilderness and Golan Heights, and floated in the Dead Sea. Along the way, I've seen some spectacular gardens, both large and small."
