Welcome!

Claire Jones

Hi,  I am glad that you stopped by! If you were interested in what I had to say and would like to get future posts, click on the follow button and you will get notification by email when I post (about once a week). I blog about anything to do with gardening, pollinators, flower arranging,  and landscape design. I make no money from my blog, but love to share my many years of gardening experiences with people. There isn’t a plant that I haven’t killed at least once!
