I intend to use the dark winter hours (when gardening is impractical) to

To make room for the new paving, an old wooden platform/deck was dismantled and reassembled into triangular raised planters. I am indebted to my friends who helped transform my ever changing ideas into 'the new garden'.
In the summer of 1996 I began formally cataloging the plants in my house and garden. First I had to identify the plant, (I didn't know the names of many of my 'cuttings'!) then I researched its botanical name. The catalog has grown to include pictures and characteristics of many of the plants. I am still researching the names of my cacti, succulents, and houseplants so some plants are presently identfied generically with names like Cacti #6! If you know any corrections to any information shown please let me know.
