Atlanta, GA; 2003-2011

My Atlanta condo provided plenty of space to pursue activities I love: sculpture/constructions, container gardening and cooking for friends; especially pies! Life in Atlanta gave me a wonderful gift: several very good people who became dear friends, to this day.  You add joy, laughter and happiness to my life; I love you always!

In 2003 the clay “soil” of a front yard in Atlanta, with full southern exposure, was like concrete (not even a blade of grass was growing); only 4 months later, after amending the yard with about 2,000 lbs. of topsoil, compost, manure and sand, it was transformed to a lush, vibrant landscape:
