Welcome to Gardening with Charlotte

If sticking coffee beans in one of my Mom’s orchids is considered
gardening, I’ve been gardening since I was 2 years old.  I’ve always been
fascinated by how things grow and what we can do with them.
My Missouri limestone hill wildlife garden is also my sanctuary.  I crave
it for the closeness I feel with God, and the spiritual renewal it gives
me. I will share my adventures here, all of them - even the ones that don’t
work - because I learn the most from failures.

The wonderful thing about a garden is that there is always a next year.
