I have been gardening for about 20 years, I've also helped my good friend get started in gardening. I love working in my garden I try to keep color in the garden from spring to fall. I also love border flowers rock gardens. I do most of my plants in pots. I'm always looking for something different to try.

I would like to thank everyone for their warm welcome. I hope you enjoy my garden it does keep me busy from early spring to late fall.

MsDebbieP you wanted to no where Maryland was well my geography is not too good but here it goes, Maryland is located just below Pennsylvania and just above Virginia. If you were in Washington, DC you could say you were Maryland. I hope that helps.

I have family in Glen Burnie. Is that far from you? I spent a portion of my youth in Maryland. Still miss steamed crab and crab cakes. Nothing even comes close to them here. Love the Inner Harbour. Maryland is full of beautiful country and so historic. It is amazing that you can drive down roads and see markers accounting Civil War battles that were fought on “the site” that you are driving by.

Last time I got to Maryland we headed to Annapolis. My friends were shopping; me, I’m roaming up and down cobblestone streets checking out the row homes that were built in the 1800’s that they were restoring. Yah, I’m a bit of a history buff.

Grandma T Glen Burnie is about 30 miles away from us I was surprised when you mentioned Glen Bernie, because my husband was raised there. We used to go there all the time to visit his mom and dad . The area they lived in was called Glen Burnie Park. Yes your right, the crabs and the crabcakes are great years ago we used to go to the Eastern shore and go crabbing. My husbands sister and family live in Annapolis so a familiar with that area also, what a pleasant surprise.

It has been years now since I was last there … but I do love Maryland. Growing up we used to go to Baltimore from Bel Aire (through the tunnel) to visit my grandmother’s sister’s. They lived near one another in those row homes.

My Uncle’s brother used to “crab” for a living … so used to catch the crab live and then bring them home and throw them in big steaming pots of water (used to freak when a few would get loose and run through the house till caught) ... whole extended family would come over for a “crab feast” ... oh man, mouth waters remembering the taste of those crabs!!!

Ahhhh, Annapolis … after visiting there, I truly tried to convince hubby to move. I truly feel in love with all the history there. I would have even given up my gardens to live in one of those restored row homes. Wish those buildings could talk … the stories … can you imagine???!!!!

You indeed live in pretty country Louise …

Grandma T this is so strange, you mentioned Bel Air. Well Edgewood is only 7 miles away from their, both Bel Air and Edgewood are in Harford County. When you have talked to about two Glen Bernie I went back and found a couple photos of my husband’s mom’s yard. She and I use to spend a lot of time going to the garden centers looking for different plant, she is now gone and I miss those times.here are two links you can click on and see her garden, let me know if it worked.

When I click on the links, I get pictures, but they are too small to really make out. Is there a way to enlarge them? I would really love to see your MIL’s gardens.

I certainly can imagine those would have been wonderful times, hunting for the “perfect plants” with her. I have similar memories of gardening with my grandfather … precious, precious memories, indeed!

My grandparents immigrated from Germany and Hungary and settled in Maryland. My mother was born in Baltimore. They eventually relocated to Michigan.

I spent part of my childhood in Bel Air. I have to say, some of my fondest memories are of living in Maryland and then visiting it as an adult.

World does get “small” doesn’t it!!! Anyway, I am glad you have joined us here at GT! You indeed have beautiful gardens Louise. I am enjoying our chat.

Hi Grandma T

Everyone here is well I’ve been busy the past two weeks I had the old stockade fence taken down and a new one put in. Before the men came down to do the work I had to go around and move plants cut back some rosebushes and cut the Ivy that was growing on the fence. Then after the fence was in I had to go around and clean up the mess, they did a great job installing the fence but they’re sloppy on clean up(will have a talk with their boss) hope to start getting my beds ready next month I guess that’s all for now talk with you later.
