I'm doing what most northerners do when we can't go outside and play in the mud anymore -- go to garden sites and pretend. I'm from Canada - snow hasn't started yet but we need our winter coats on already. You people are the friendliest bunch ever. I've been looking over the sites and realized I was supposed to do this before - sorry for my breach of etiquette folks.
I work full time (in a Bank _ Arg)so I need gardening to bring me back to earth after a hard day. I have always done the seed thing and last year was introduced to Brugmansias. Liz was kind enough to send me a couple of cuttings of new varities and introduced me to this site. I in turn have shared my cuttings with newbies as well - September 11 has sure put a damper on trading but I still plug along as best as can be expected.
My real name is really Annie and I'm glad to be here!!
And from the dry, cold and snowy side of Oregon, hello and welcome. We have a bunch of snow already for the past 2 or 3 weeks and I don't expect to see the ground until about April, so I am in "gardener's pretending mode".
