Home hobby rose and peony grower. College art professor and sculpture maker. Enjoys species, fragrant hybrids, and unusual...as well as the usual...except Knockout roses. Cannot stand these vapid, common, pathetic excuses of a 'rose' for lazy 'gardeners' who expect roses to grow after they are jammed into a hole.
Love traveling and learning about native plants indigenous to each area I visit. Grew up on a sailboat. Been to s. America, India, Europe, Canada and many US states.
Love getting my hands dirty; it's therapeutic. Waiting for a horti dream job in a progressive state like Colorado.
