Charlotte Germane gardens in California, but it's not all tender succulents for her. In fact, her garden in Nevada City has four seasons and snow in Zone 7b. In this scenic area, Charlotte says her plant choices are limited by two requirements: "deer-resistance and drought-tolerance."
When she's not gardening, she's blogging for Dirt du jour: Northern California and Daffodil Planter. Or tweeting as @DaffodilPlanter.
One of Charlotte's favorite garden books is based on a love that started when she was a 22-year-old transplant to Washington, D.C.

Another one of Charlotte's favorite books comes from another gardening role model ... this time from the world of fashion.
