Happy Birthday Nadene Miller! Your son, Ty, wanted to surprise you by honoring your garden on the GPOD on your birthday (did it work?). 

Ty says "Mom turns 91 on January 28th and I know she would get a great deal of joy seeing her garden honored as the GPOD. I selected photos to share, which was not an easy task as I have taken hundreds over the years! Mom is a big fan of the GPOD and she checks the post every morning after breakfast."

Here's how Ty describes his mother's love of gardening: "A love affair with gardening that began with a scrapbook at the age of 14, continued through a long string of many gardens around central Illinois that she started optimistically but ultimately abandoned, and finally, after settling in her current home in 1996, culminated in “the garden of her dreams.” At 91, Nadene Miller still gardens--as much as the challenges of extreme age allow - on her 40’ X  70’ plot in Bloomington, Illinois."
