I am in Oak Park, Illinois, USA (zone 5b) with a semi-native, semi-organic garden and pond.

  1. Hi Oak Park,

    Thought I knew all the Chicago area bloggers but you are new to me. I’m down in Florida now but will add you to my blogroll when I get back to Chicago.

    Enjoy the warm weather in Florida, Carolyn! This has been one of the dreariest winters I’ve seen in Chicago.

  4. Mam,

    I found your webpage by chance while I was searching for Images of “false virginia creeper”. First of all, your garden reflects the hard work you seem to have put into it and next, you take great photographs. I took up gardening recently , and if anything it has taught me patience. I am enjoying it. You can look at my gallery if you are so inclined. http://www.force4x4.com/gallery

    Again, it was joyous to see your garden, albeit from half a world away.

    Thanks! I was getting a bit discouraged from our recent flooding, but your words make me feel better. I will view your photos and get back out there!
