I am a professional landscape designer. I have an office in my home so I'm here a LOT. I am also crazy about gardening. I'm gradually converting pretty much all of my lawn to gardens. I grow rare and wonderful trees and shrubs, many kinds of annual and perennial flowering plants, and all kinds of veggies. I am currently planting fruit trees, brambles, strawberries, etc. And this year I venture into cut-flower growing! Not much lawn left!
I also love to rent rooms to interesting people! I have had so much fun meeting the folks who come here through airbnb! They have come from many countries, states, and walks of life. I love it! I am hoping to get some Turkish visitors so that I can practice my Turkish on them. I have traveled in many countries, myself and love to swap stories!
I love good food. I grow much of my own. I am interested in all things homesteading... and have been at this since the 1970's when I built and lived in my own underground house in Michigan. I love to share ideas on this subject.
I am a Heritage chicken enthusiast. I am currently raising Langshans, a critically endangered large black breed originally from China. I also have Dominiques, the oldest American breed. They are gentle birds and will eat out of my hand. I am also breeding and hatching baby chicks. If you come at the right time you can hold them!
I love to DANCE! Especially to the blues. You can find me out making something up on the dance floor at the great clubs in "Ashevegas". Looking silly, maybe, but having fun!
And lastly, I am thoroughly in love with this wonderful old stone house. I spend lots of time working to restore my home and make it more and more liveable. Last year I got a new roof and this year I'm working on all of the windows. I feel so at home here. Come see! I'd love to have you!
