Former ER nurse Candace Calvert gives readers a chance to “scrub in” on the exciting world of emergency medicine with her Grace Medical Series — an encouraging prescription for hope. She’s always found peaceful joy in gardening and is thrilled that she and her husband have recently moved back to her native northern California. Their lush, private yard offers a rose garden, soothing sounds of waterfalls, enticements for butterflies and hummingbirds — “and great spots for the grandkids to build forts and play hide-and-seek.” Just what the doctor ordered.

Love your garden. I have been working on my yard and gardening for 3 yrs. The last 18 mos, since I retired, I have worked constantly. I do enjoy the work as it relaxes me, and because I get to see the beauty from all the hard work.
One day I may win the lottery and buy a larger house with alot of yard. lol I must be crazy but I can hire someone to do the hard work and I can do just what I want which is plant. Of course then I could have a very large library and buy all the books on my wish list plus more. lol

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving comments--it's so great that Deb offers this opportunity for authors to share their gardens. Love it!
Rel--my sweet Mom was a rose gardener supreme and I carried a bouquet of her blooms at our wedding. This new rose garden is such a lovely reminder of her.
Kallie, I SO understand what you mean: gardens and books, equally wonderful!

Glad to see someone else using an old wheelbarrow as a planter. Mine is full of different kinds of sage.
