Secret to success

Sunset's style of casual elegance and warmth speaks volumes of a wonderful way of life. You have inspired me to have a satisfying and healthy hobby: gardening.

I have always wanted lots of roses. Through your pages, I learned how to care for them. I also became enchanted by cottage gardens. They seemed the perfect environment for both roses and the cozy feeling I was seeking. Through the "can-do" attitude from your magazine, I was able to accomplish my dreams. My daughter and I put down our "cobblestone" pathway with cement and a form. That path is the highlight of the rose garden. Then we tackled another project: a planter for our tree that doubles as a seat. I've learned about lawns, perennials, annuals, rose-friendly flowers to grow nearby, and all about the seasons.

I am known to those who love me as "the gardengal." "How does your garden grow?" I'm always asked. The best moment of all was when my youngest daughter asked me, "Mom, did you ever think you'd have a garden this beautiful?" "No," I answered.

Sunset, you've been such a rich part of my life, I couldn't have done it without you. You're better than therapy!
