the miniature umbel

My first attempts at gardening started off slowly, with just a single cilantro plant in 2019. It wasn’t until a few years later that I came across the world of growing cut flowers and started a container garden.

the miniature umbel is a space where I document my time in the garden. My favorite plants include sweet peas, snapdragons, zinnias, and tomatoes. I hope to slowly expand the variety of flowers that I grow within a limited space. My latest project is to plan out a low-maintenance dry shade garden.
