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. Not much lawn left!

I am happy to say that my boyfriend, John, is living here now. He is a wonderful, kind, fun, and creative man. We share in the daily chores and both love to meet and interact with guests.

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 several heritage breeds.

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. A few years ago I got a new roof and now I'm working on the windows and getting ready to paint the exterior trim. I feel so at home here. Come see! I'd love to have you!
