Life is too short for ugly roses.

Welcome to Miniblooms' new site. This is where you'll find my musings on everything from my devotion to perennials (tip toeing through the petunias is not my thing) to the challenges (!!) and rewards of drought-tolerant lawns.

Though I've been gardening for over 40 years, my biggest lesson is simple: If you don't like a plant, pull that sucker out.  As I tell my kids, life is too short for ugly roses.
