According to this photo, I apparently started gardening very early in life. Roses were my specialty and I am pretty sure Dad helped out some in the beginning.
Once I arrived at Saltair Station, I was advised by the locals that coastal roses are actually "deer candy." Deer can strip a whole rose garden in a matter of minutes.
After learning this first hand (not heeding wise advice), my rose beds now contain Crocosmia which are less exciting to deer and a favorite hangout for hummingbirds. They just don't smell as fragrant as the Mister Lincoln roses I grew up with!
