Sept. 21 column

I just love profiling local gardeners! My column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review is just that: a profile of Lynn Meyers, who has a huge back deck that she has planted and decorated beautifully. Lynn is going to be certified as a WSU/Spokane County Master Gardener volunteer in October so you can see she knows her stuff.

Here are some photos from my visit to her "deck garden" and here's a link to my column: All hands on deck. Hope you enjoy it! (remember you can click on any photos to see an enlarged view)

This is how Lynn screens her hot tub from view during the off-season.

Lynn's deck has 3 different levels and multiple sitting areas.

Castor bean plant with red stems and leaves -- beautiful!
