I'm a 50-something woman living in Iowa. I grew up in a small town, graduated high school, and went to nursing school. I married Ron 38 years ago, and we have two children, a daughter and a son, and now two grandsons.
I love animals and gardening; I love travel; I enjoy NASCAR and basketball (spectator only). I'm retired, I'm a tea granny, and I like to cook.
About Beyond the Garden Gate:
Over the years I've shared many things (500 posts and counting).
And then, there is THE GARDENS...my favorite thing to photograph and blog about!
I occasionally blog about my travel adventures. Perhaps there will be more about that now that my hubby has retired. Sweet freedom!
5 years, 500 plus posts and counting...what does the future of the blog look like?
I consider this primarily a gardening blog and we all know there's not much gardening going on during an Iowa winter. Therefore, except for the occasional tea post or "weather shot" the blog will be rather quiet until springtime. Then, wow! You can journey with me as I continue the garden remodeling, a big project that began when we added a New Orleans-inspired courtyard and pergola plus a waterfall, stream, and pond. You can read more about that project HERE.
Thanks to all my readers for five great years!
