Paula Klaas was our final winner from last week's #ContainerCraze contest.  We caught up with her and received some additional photos of her garden that we wanted to share.

“Here are some photos of my gardens.  I left a much larger property with beautiful gardens, to a smaller property; so basically, I am starting over and creating new gardens.  I have enjoyed gardening all my life, from vegetables to perennials, shrubs, and trees.  I enjoy collecting seed and sharing them with friends.  I collect acorns in the fall and give them to a local grower to start.”

No doubt, we would all love to see some of her former beautiful gardens mentioned too!
