Racquel , Newport News, Virginia
I am a passionate gardener who would rather be outside digging in the dirt than inside cleaning up the dirt.

  1. Hiya Raquel,

    Nice to meet you and your meticulous blog, so full of sound information.

    I still can’t get used to Americans calling ‘soil’ ‘dirt’, even though we lived amongst you for almost a decade. Look at your lovely soil, particularly the stuff you have built up so nicely: dirt? No, surely
    not 😉

    Thanks Joco, nice meeting you too. I’m glad you like my blog. I actually call it both, but you’re right that beautiful stuff I’ve been putting down is definitely not dirt. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

      Hello Southerngardener,

      Thanks for stopping by, glad you’ve enjoyed reading my blog. The white flower heading my blog is a Peruvian Daffodil. I found the bulbs locally at Lowe’s for a good price this spring. I think it’s beautiful too. 🙂
