I love to garden. Great exercise and peaceful surroundings help us to become creative. When you drive by, take a breath, look at the pretty flowers – whose purpose is to help clean the air and lighten your heart.

What I don’t like is using lots of water. We use below the required amount of water. I plant drought-tolerant plants. We use only plants that I know will grow well in this area without a lot of water. It can be done.

I have belonged to the Garden Club of DeLand for years and we help anyone find the right plants for the different seasons. Check out the website.: www.GardenClubofDeLand.org.
