    I think that if i had to move from NC, it would either be to VA or the Pacific Northwest--I just love it out there!

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. I too have front yard flower beds and backyard garden beds. The front patio has many flower containers.

    Have a great gardening day.

    It is fun to help stuff to grow isn't it. It looks like you have a lot of stuff growing.

    Have a great gardening day.
