Gardening is definitely a passion for me.  My first garden was in my husband's and my first real home when we lived on Camp Pendleton, in California.  I began probably like most people with a few annual flowers dug into the soil in a garden bed.  

Then I found roses...  And a lifetime of rose gardens have followed from 42 rose bushes of various colors at the first home we owned in California to planted pots that I am using now {coming full-circle!}.

When I am tired or stressed, gardening soothes me.  Gardening is such a happy place! I hope it is for you, too.
