I’m Kary Beck – mother and wife, gardener, wine enthusiast, avid online bargain hunter, and owner of two black-and-tan cocker spaniels.
I began this blog in 2011 to learn more about blogging, the process of writing for a blog, and the nuances of WordPress. If on occasion it looks odd or strange new features appear, remember this a place for me to learn, experiment and grow… just like the garden I describe in the posts.
My youngest son pointed out that some of my family stories are somewhat different than the reality he remembers or that he remembers his grandparents telling. And I have to admit he may be right, at times I’ve forgotten all of the details and/or am trying to shorten a story for this space and so took liberties with the actual facts. In the end my goal is to tell a good story. However, any of the info I provide about plants have been checked and hopefully rechecked so that you can trust any gardening advice I give.
Fore more information, my first blog describes how this all began.
