I didn't know when I purchased this metal daisy this spring at the Master Gardener's day-long event that it would get rusty. Perhaps due to the surprise, I wasn't immediately taken to it, but soon I decided that I liked the contrast in colors--and even the juxtaposition of life and death. And that does it; I finally used the word "juxtaposition" (I can't tell you how many times I heard it from professors in college). And I amuse myself.
When my sister practically whispered several years ago that she had a blog (a what?), this whole new world opened up. I really had no great desire to start my own (I was happy doing a little cruisin' here and there), but here I am. I have interests in stamping, crafting, DIY projects, sharing, learning, and keeping life fun. I'm the mother of three, enjoyed being an at-home mom for a dozen years, have had the chance to have varied jobs (DJ anyone?) and volunteer positions, and have experienced the world of disabilities first hand with my son, Daniel, who has Down Syndrome. But don't let me digress, as it's gardening I've decided to focus on!
