Your gardens are beautiful! I thought that they looked a little similar to my own (only with fewer weeds and more flowers), then I realized that you live nearby. I am in west Durham and used to live in Orange County as well. When you mentioned Niche Gardens, I knew you were a neighbor!

Thank you! We had a house (and gardens, of course) in eastern Durham for nine years, and we rented a house about half a mile from 9th street for a few years before that (By the way, I enjoyed the Independent article on Durham a few weeks ago. I got tired of seeing it beaten up in the national news). It's funny how, even though we only moved 20 minutes west, there are things we can grow better in Orange County, and things that we could grow in Durham that we don't have much luck with here (By the way, the weeds are sneaky - they're hiding under the flowers in the cool shade, waiting to take over the world).

Niche Gardens is one of our favorite places!
