After 19 years of gardening in Raleigh, NC, we retired back to Colorado Springs, Colorado.  We love the cool summer nights and spectacular mountain views from our deck.  The growing season is shorter here, and you can get snow (or hail)  on the dahlias, but beautiful gardens can be created with all-season interest.  Follow along as I transform my blank slate lot into a garden that can be enjoyed by people and wildlife.
