It’s a day of pure joy. When the wind blows and sets the whole green forest to dancing, I’m sure my soul can no longer fit within its boundaries, but must go out and share.
Do you know the feeling I’m talking about?

Who am I?
While that question is probably a little difficult to answer in a paragraph (or even in a lifetime), I can tell you that my name is Meredith, and that I love to ponder life's mystery and beauty and joys and then write about them. This blog is all about my interactions with Nature during my walks in the woods, visits to Botanical Gardens, in my own small, organic kitchen garden -- and anywhere else I happen to be when inspiration strikes.
Where does my garden grow?
Upstate South Carolina, in USDA Hardiness Zone 7(b) (average annual low temperatures between 5°and 10° F/-15° to -12.2° C) and in AHS Plant Heat Zone 8 (90 to 120 days per year above 86° F/30° C). We get a lot of rain, nearly 50 inches (127 cm) per year in a typical year -- although lately we've been plagued by drought. This region of the United States is considered subtropical.
