Hello All,

I have been away for some years and my garden shows it. I live in Northeast Ohio on the edge of the winter lake effect. I am recently retired and have plenty of time to get back to one of my favorite passions, watching flowers grow. I am spending the winter renewing some of my old garden ornaments by repainting them and trying my hand at rock painting. Also going to do wintersewing this Dec-Jan. It's only November but I am really looking forward to Spring already.

I am really looking forward in the future to trading and discussing different topics.

Take care, Shirley

Yes, but where on the forums do newbies go to really connect with other newbies? A lot of the regional forums and other forums, the people on them have been together for years or met at RUs or something. They know each and just chat away ... and that's understandable. That's great. But it seems sort of hard to fit in and know what they are talking about. You feel like an interloper asking dumb questions that everyone else knows. I've heard that from others so know it's at least fairly common.

Wish there was a place for newbies to start a discussion group with other newbies. Is there?

I've read about various gardening topics on DG for some years but just became a member a few months ago. Where do newbies go to really fit in??
