a lovely garden isn't always planned. Sometimes 'accidents' add much to the beauty.
Succulent plants are easy to grow in containers during summer, but a little trickier to overwinter in cold climates.
Take a cue from nature when landscaping with rocks and boulders around backyard ponds and water gardens.
Even if you have a black thumb or your house has so little light you may as well dwell in a cave, there are plants that will be successful for you.
