Garden Girl – Patience in Gardening Goes A Long Way  JULY 12, 2016

What a whirlwind this spring has been! I am pleasantly surprised to see all the foxgloves in bloom already!

Special Message from Garden Girl Regarding Comment in Standard Freeholder – May 16, 2014

CFN – It was recently brought to my attention that a person commenting on the Cornwall Standard Freeholder site is using the moniker “gardengirl13”.
