Whispering Effects

My name is Vicki and I’m passionate about plants. I don’t discriminate; I love them all: trees, vines, succulents, epiphytes, grasses, ornamentals & medicinal as well.

A little background about me:

My passion for plants did not reveal itself until my last semester at college. The understanding that learning and working with plants was more than just a hobby hit me like lightning and ever since then it comes as waves and captures my imagination. So please, come along with me on this fascinating journey and feel free to browse through my container gardens.

Perhaps you are intimidated and think you can kill them, but plants are quite resilient, no wonder they have been around since the Ordovician period or around 450 million years ago. Therefore, you will be surprised to find that with a little patience and care you too can enjoy their beauty and serenity. My wish is to bring a little green into everyone’s life so we all can enjoy cleaner air and happiness. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my creations!
