I have lived in Fairbanks since 2001. Previously I lived in Moscow, Idaho and previously to that, I lived in Lakewood, Washington where i was born and raised. Growing up, my parents were heavy into gardening both vegetables and flowers. It was from them that I got my love of gardening. I really love flowers. I love the many colors and varieties flowers come in. Because I enjoy so many flowers, it’s difficult for me to pin point a favorite. So I would say, my top three flowers would be peonies, sunflowers and petunias.
