Sue’s thoughts on her garden:
My garden is a combination of all the things that are important to me: A habitat for wildlife; a place to grow our own food; a colorful mix of flowers and flora for my arrangements; an area where native and drought tolerant plants are emphasized; a truly fulfilling adventure.
What my grandkids like about my garden:
They love to search for bugs, capture frog eggs and watch them grow into polliwogs, and eat fruits and veggies right out of the garden.
Why is having a water-wise garden important?
Having a water-wise garden is good way to set an example for future generations and to free ourselves of the noisy, polluting, time consuming array of lawn mowers, blowers and weed whackers!
