I'm a Pacific Northwest coast area gardener. Enjoy the process greatly. Prefer traditional and English flower garden styles. Happy gardening!

@pixierose Christine I’ve read that the cones or flowers help with insomnia. Is so, I should try it. 😆 They can also be very poisonous to pets so they are on the other side of the fence. 🐶

Great color. My hops are doing great this year too. Kind of fun to have.

Yep, it’s a great fast growing vine Laura @columbiariver I made the mistake of planting mine under a redbud so it’s a constant battle keeping it controlled. I just think of it like a teenager. 😂

Lol! Oh that's rich Ken! So true. I planted mine so it goes up a tall post, then into one of the big maples...if it gets that big. Like freeing Willy!
