It's chilly and dark. Rain alternating with blistering cold. Frost on the windshield each morning. I'm craving the outdoors... craving green out my windown, not brown. Thinking about the steps I need to take to make my rather bare landscape into beautiful outdoor rooms and vistas.

I'm dreaming of creating gardens like these someday:
For now, I obsess over pictures, read magazines galore, and take classes to learn what it takes to make these beautiful landscapes a reality.
