In my yard, they pop up in the bed by my yard's Victorian cast iron fence -- in the bed I meant to transform into a perennial cottage garden wonderland. Twenty-one years ago, when we moved in, I dug a vegetable plot in the back yard and the long border bed out front. Back then, when I was doing historic preservation consulting ...

We also like the fact she's a female of Indian descent who helps the diversity picture in South Carolina.
