After a serious mistake and a lot of help (thank goodness for Terry's expertise!) I finally got my cousin shirleygirly on board. My first try at setting up someone else; hope to do it more smoothly next time.
Shirley lives in Tyler and I wasn't sure about the hardiness zone - 8a, right? I don't have a picture of her right now, so here's one of her niece Sara at the Tyler Rose Garden.
Welcome to the garden, shirleygirly! We have another fairly new member from Tyler, wysocki3. Here is a thread she started: http://davesgarden.com/forums/t/515264/. Don't be shy, we'd love to hear from you!
Thank you Yuska for getting me all hooked up and hello to everyone. Glad to know ya! I quit gardening when we moved from our home of 24 years. But now we've lived here 2 years and I'm ready to fix this place up. It's a house we lease so it needs some work on the landscapeing. I'm enjoying DG very much.
