  1. love that garden! your full time nurturing has done wonders!

    1. Hi Jody and Mar,
      Thank you for your nice comment. As you can tell, we love the garden. Putting a drip system in with drippers to most of the plants helps minimize the work and keep everything happy in the heat since we haven't had a lot of rain yet. You did a great job of selecting and arranging plants that compliment each other. Orange has become a new favorite of ours in the garden, especially since the hummingbirds like it, too. Good to hear from you. Take care.
      Terry and Jon
