I am a major market girl. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA.

A few years back, my husband and I returned from our annual sojourn to Maui and decided we had to get the heck out of the big city. So, he retired and we relocated to the Treasure Coast.

I had been coming to Southeast Florida on business for 25 years or so and my college roommate lives in Hobe Sound. I had been here, Larry had not.. so, we looked around, he loved it, we bought a house and relocated. Now my satellite radio gets stuck on Margaritaville (I had nothing to do with this – it is karmatic.)

I have practiced Landscape Architecture for almost 30 years and found the dearth of useful information on plants and landscaping for the Treasure Coast in general to be troubling, I knew a lot about what grows here, have learned a lot more and wanted to share the knowledge;  hence the blog. I love plants, fun facts, semi healthy food,wine and dogs. The complete lack of winter and local produce sweeten the deal.  The proximity to the beach sealed the deal.

So long Major Market…

    Belated hello from Türkiye… just wanted to say “thank you”, I appreciate your recent ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there. It’s been a while I know, but a storm knocked out our village internet and phone, hence the delay!

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day-to-day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my collection. There are plenty of categories within the drop-down menus to help in said digging process.

    Hope you have a great day…



    • Spike, thanks I have been enjoying your blog from the lower coast of the US. I grow (I use that term loosely) citrus here as well.
      My grandfather was a farmer and I am not sure how he could stand the stress!

        It’s an interesting, yet frustrating world, with so many variables… it’s just a hobby farm tbh for us, with ‘profit’ maybe $500-1000 a year. Keeps me off the streets 🙂
