Well there you go, I, apparently, am a snapdragon. I don't mind this a bit, it is a nice traditional staple in most perennial gardens, that sounds like me. Thanks for this Debra (Us In France ). Gardening is one of my passions, and the garden of my current house is my longest garden so far. I am always starting gardens, staying around possibly a couple of summers, then moving on. This is the first garden where I am about to experience my fourth year. It is lovely to actually see the results of one's labours. I am a haphazard gardener, I love traditional plants, lavender being my absolute favourite, can't have too many different varieties. I love to fill every available space, and I am always rescuing orphans at the garden centre and of course donations from friends are never refused.
Every fall I mean to take photos so that next spring I will be ready to transplant those that have become too big for their boots, and those who have been swallowed by those bigger plants. But as usual I forgot again last year. Another favourite is hostas, all shapes and colours, I think this comes from having had shady gardens and these always do well there. Pots are another obsession, I must currently have around 20 - 30 pots of different sizes and shapes, although these don't do so well here in Canadian summers which are so hot and dry, too much watering required. A garden, or at the very least an outside space to potter amongst my pots, is the one thing I don't think I will ever be able to give up.
