Home of Stella's Gardens

We are now living full time in Northeast Iowa, and working on the new gardens. It will keep us busy for quite a while...

As an avid gardener since I was about 7 years old, that gives me over 45 years of experience gardening in this part of the world. And every year teaches me a bit more.

Also, working on a new website at stellasgardens - dot - com. Feel free to check it out and comment!

Shouldn't I be outside instead of blogging?

I did manage to add two pages, one for Starting Seeds, and one with a couple of pictures of the new house.  We finally made it to 60 deg F so I should probably try and get something done outside today before dinner...

It's been a long fall and winter, lots of things to do with the new house on the verge of starting. May be posting more about that....in the meantime, with the discussion of impatiens and their impending doom (hope not) here is a picture of my shady corner many years ago - you can still see too much of the neighbor's icky yard, and this was before the shed was built behind the fence, making it even darker....Impatiens are invaluable to me here, Shady Ladies! And today, amazing number of cardinals mobbing the feeders this evening. A minimum of a dozen in view...light snow falling, quite the colorful sight!
