Happy Monday, everyone, and welcome to Day 2 in Kathy Vedder's garden. In case you missed it, here's what Kathy said on Friday: "I live in Kansas City, Missouri, and my husband and I moved into this house on 1/4 acre about 30 years ago, but I did not start gardening until after I retired about 15 years ago. I became a Master Gardener in 1996 where I learned so much valuable information. I still enjoy volunteering for our Master Gardeners of Greater Kansas City program making and painting concrete leaves and hypertufa orbs, which are sold at our annual plant and art sale. I love studying beautiful garden photos from magazines, my garden tour photos, and this Fine Gardening website. Over the years I have continued to add new beds as old ones filled up with the newest and improved plants...which aren't always so new nor improved, but I love experimenting! I have blooms from the first daffodil in March to the last Aster in October. I appreciate the lovely, graceful lines of curved beds and I've tried to imitate that, but at the end of the day I still have straight lines. Maybe I'll work on that next." You've done an incredible job, Kathy. Spectacular!
