Full of good intentions, I set up this blog many months ago. However, due to the usual inertia, I never actually did anything with it. Until now. I'm not a master gardener or anything, just a middle-aged guy with new-found enthusiasm for gardening, and especially bamboo and succulents. My goal is to write at least semi-regularly about my experiences gardening on a small suburban lot and hopefully inspire others the way that I've been inspired to create not only a more attractive yard, but also a sanctuary where I can go to relieve the stresses of work and life.
