Hi, I’m Pamela

I am so glad to meet you. Won’t you join me in the garden?

I love to share all the garden doings, tips and tricks and experience I have gained over the past 40 years working in the dirt. (some take exception to me using the word ‘dirt’ instead of soil, sorry if you are one of them)

I learned my garden lessons the hard way, by doing. Some things failed while others flourished. I share here what knowledge I have gained and what I am now learning.

Back in 1997, I started a website called Backwoods Cottage where I sold my hand painted signs and made it to #1 on Google for hand painted custom signs.

The orders were tremendous and it was a great way to make some extra money but it became so much that I got burned out.

In 2008 I decided to start journaling via this blog our work on our little mountain cottage and Flower Patch Farmhouse was born.

Over the years it has been more about the garden than the house but my sweet little Primrose Cottage shown here is still where I paint and create. You can find my free painting tutorials here at Pamela Groppe Art!
