I'm going to make sure my husband reads this - he thinks I alone suffer from garen madness. I start poring over the catalogs the day after Christmas and then start ordering up a storm.

I can pass up new clothes and fine restaurants, but let me 'go along for the ride' with a friend to a nursery and it's all over. How often have those purchases ended up languishing on the side of the house or in a neighbor's garden?

I diligently planted during our first spring and summer here. After winter things started taking off. But the next 12 months were different... We had gophers, rabbits, frost and 115 degree days with wind. I could actually watch the plants curl up and die. My biggest lesson learned? Buy at the big box stores that offer refunds with your receipt for up to 1 yr.! It is hilarious when you bring in your bags of twigs and shriveled root balls and try to identify which plant goes with what on the receipt. I hope I am more successfull this year.
