I've been gone for awhile.

Was permanently laid-off from my job as a Receptionist @ a "well-known" Brokerage Firm in March, 2008. Was on unemployment. Started a new job as a Receptionist in October, 2008, for a company that 'sucked' (unfortunately didn't know that at the time...) and again joined the ranks of unemployed in March, 2009...think that the month of March is a 'bad mojo' month for me?!?! Started working as a temp employee for an Employment Agency in the fall of 2009 and that lasted until I became ill in Dec, 2010 and was in the hospital during the Xmas holidays (was actually admitted on Christmas Day. I was given a 'new' antibiotic to which I suffered a serious allergic reaction to resulting in my being permanently disabled.

I missed DG very, very much and am back...

Thank you, missingrosie, for the welcome back.

Last summer, b4 I knew that I'd be incapacitated this summer, I planted a lot of perennials (5 different Hardy Dinnerplate Hibiscus, 4 species of Rose of Sharons, Southern Charm Verbascum, Bee Balm, Trumpet Vine, etc.) so I really 'lucked out'. I still have some Tropicals (EE's, Cannas, Hawaiian Ti Plant...) that need to be taken in over the winter but I have them planted in containers that I take the plants out of so they're easier to transport into the basement. Now I'm hoping to get some Brugmansia cuttings this Fall as I had given all mine away a couple of years ago. I started Daturas from seed and am really, really impressed with the way they grew but...still miss the brugs cause the brugs hold onto their blooms a lot longer than the dats (which only last a day).
