My name is Ruth.  I’m 66,  a retired nurse, retired basket weaver,  still wife, mom and gram to my immediate family here in Rochester, NY.

My passion is gardening with sides of sailing on Lake Ontario and crazy quilting and reading in other spare moments.

This blog is a way to share the results of my garden journeys and hopefully it will help me remember from year to year what transpired and the lessons learned.

Posts on sailing and embroidery are just for fun. But wouldn’t it be nice to use this blog as a log of our trips on Watercolors? Another learning curve OMG.
