Such an inspiration! I am putting on my boots and gloves and do some gardening. Love the tulips, and brilliant advice, from now on I will keep them in containers. Great articles Houzz, keep them coming!

Lawn, shmawn...This is lush and gorgeous and sustains wildlife, unlike a lawn.

What an absolute delight, Amanda. I too, am sorry for your loss and glad your husband was able to enjoy some time in this serene haven you created.
