I garden for pollinators especially for butterflies and hummingbirds. I also love to paint and draw them. Nature is my church. My studio is outside in the garden. When I plant flowers I look for the ones that butterflies and hummingbirds love. My current favorite plants are Eriogonum latifolium 'Seaside Buckwheat', Fuchsia 'Santa Cruz', and Arctotis ‘Ultra Violet’. I am in love with pink -not baby pink but deep magenta pink flowers. I started gardening about eight years ago when a good friend gave me some succulents that she had grown in her garden. I managed not to kill them and that gave me the courage to plant some flowers.
