Veronica in Monet's garden at Giverny, France

I’m a Canadian writer who gardens near Toronto, Ontario. I write for a variety of media including¬† HGTV.ca, Canadian Gardening Magazine, East of the City, Dream Homes and many more. As well,¬† I appear regularly as the Gardening Guru on “Daytime”, a Roger’s Cable TV production.¬† I enjoy serving as the National Director (Canada & International) for the Garden Writers Association.

Gardening has been my passion for as long as I can remember. The fascination started when I was little with the seed catalogs that came to my Dad in the mail. I loved the pen and ink drawings of spaghetti squash and dried-out gourds masquerading as birdhouses. I still browse seed catalogs with enthusiasm.

And, I have a lust for travel. In my wanderings I’ve been able to snoop around in many public and private gardens all over the world.

This blog is about my gardening world. It may be in my own patch of paradise at home or somewhere else on the other side of the planet. Welcome to my gardening adventures.
