I am Tiffany, a Master Gardener and the author, creator, queen, CEO, and supreme ruler of this little piece of the internet called Songbird Gardens. This site is named after my backyard garden where I escape, renew, and fall deeper in love with growing every day.
In March 2012 we purchased a fixer-upper home on a half-acre city plot in Northwest Arkansas, hardiness zone 7a. I am always expanding to grow unconventional items, our daily food, and enough to preserve. I won’t submit to traditional gardening rules, we don’t do things simply because that’s how everyone else does them. This blog is about gardening without rules, outside the box, with reckless abandon. Growing should be fun! We will have failures, of this I am sure, but we will also have plenty of victory...delicious victory.
Above all, the goal of this blog is to inspire you. I want to encourage you to turn a bit of dirt into something beautiful, to take time to enjoy your harvest, and to find beauty everyday.
Family:My happy nest consists of my husband James, our son Lane, and a houseful of furry friends.
In December of 2009, we celebrated "Gotcha Day" by bringing Lane home to be part of our forever family. Parenting a former foster child is filled with ups and downs, but we celebrate each milestone and work to make each day better than the last. In June of 2010, Lane legally became a part of our family, although he was in our hearts long before that.
I’ll just be blunt here and say that I’m not cut out to be in the corporate world. The idea of abiding by a dress code makes me break out in hives and the thought of spending day after day in a windowless cubicle makes my knees weak. I feel very blessed to spend most of my days barefoot and relaxed in my own home working as a freelance writer with a few different companies.

If you have dirt, you can grow something!
