Thanks so much to all of you for the hearty welcomes! It's great to find so many great people who think like I do! My family thinks I've gone off the deep end spending so much time on the computer, but everything is soooo intersting. I have been doing mostly reading so far, but I will be finding my way around soon, so I can participate in all of the fun!!
I work in a pharmacy, so I don't get much exposure to fresh air, winters are tough (at least until it's time to start seeds). I have always gardened, but now I'm an empty nester, so I can do what I want instead of horse-show, 4-H, Cub Scouts, and school functions! I have horses, and a potting shed, my gardens are cottage style I guess, I just do what I like, and I like to try new plants and propagation. My perennials are well on their way, my new toy this year is trees and shrubs, and wildflowers. But that sure doesn't rule out the rest!! I wish I'd found you guys before I spent a small fortune on seeds already this year. Looking forward to lots of fun!!
Thanks again to all of you, It's too late, I'm already addicted to this!! I am already mentally tallying how many plants I will have to offer to swap with people, and looking forward to all of the great advice to be had. I have some hefty plant orders on their way for spring, and I am one to "push the envelope" as far as zones, etc. so I will be picking everyones brain to help me with new things!!
I have found some real kindred souls among you. This is the best resource ever! Thanks Again! L
