Hi and Welcome!
I’m a gardener and musician. I hope to offer you helpful hints with your gardens and plants, share beautiful scenes, and answer any questions you might have. Years back, I became a Master Gardener and then went on to work at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. One thing I learned out in New York is that there is a high regard for Chicago and it’s botanical scene. New York City’s people are some of my favorites, and those people know of the Garfield Park Conservatory and of the roof top garden on City Hall. Love of music brought me back to Chicago where I taught piano and played in two bands, Reds and Blue as well as Coins. Currently, I am working on an acre garden (veggie and tropical ornamental) in El Yunque National Forest where we live with our 5 rescued dogs (one we brought down from Chicago and four showed up on our road here in PR). I have the privilege to continually meet great folks that love the land. I look forward to sharing what I learn in my new tropical zone with you.
