Throughout history, across the continents and cultures of the world, gardens have always been a special place to human beings.  It's as if gardens bring out the Adam and Eve in all of us.

Here is a portfolio of places in which Ty and her botanical friends hang out and grow, inside restaurants, outside restaurants, rooftop terraces, and condos and offices.  Humans and greenery - it's been a love affair from the beginning.

Just living is not enough... One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

– Hans Christian Anderson
