What materials did you use? Far too many to list. Far too many discarded. Far too many root pruned. Far too many saved and loved. Greenery, fragrance, color-oh so much in the way of beautiful color, too little in the way of hand protection, fertilizer done in a timely manner, kneelers, sit-down carts for the times prior to two hip surgeries, buckets to aid in scrap and as a means to rise from a kneeling position, and finally, my oxygen concentrator, for the abilty to breathe while I did what 'needed' to be done.

What are you most proud of? It's hard to narrow it down to one. It's difficutl to look at the whole in terms of 'what I am most proud of'. I can say that my rose collection and my individual rose varieties are cause for much joy, but in terms of what I am 'Most' proud of is my tenacity against what would appear to be 'against all odds', for those who have been able to go through life unaffected by any addictions and therefore any understanding will never 'get it'. It's life, itself.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Gather much in the way of willpower, a good dose of patience, a love of creation, a passion for beauty, and the ability to ignore the naysayers.

I love your garden, and I love the back story. Gardening is such a heritage. My dad tilled up the side yard for me to put seeds into when I was a kid, I didn't know what I was doing and I don't think I got anything out of it by way of produce, but it was great.

Alot of credit goes out to you. Your garden is beautiful !! How did you get your roses so tall by the patio and I see no support for them?
