Still new to the system. Just give me a couple of days to figure things out. This a big hello to everyone. I just read a couple of introduction and I didn't know you were suppose to tell your whole life's story. Well here goes. I'm a wife of 14 years with a great husband to boot. A mother of two wonderful boys; one is 14 the other is 8. I'm from the island of Guam but I love it here in the states. Can't beat having so many things to do around here and so many places to go to. I just started getting into gardening even though I grew up helping my mom in her garden. Now that we have our own place I decided that it was time that the yard had more than just a lawn. Working on putting in a perennial garden. I've had success on tall bearded irises, dahlias, hostas, mexican sages, russian sage and also pineapple sage (which has a wonderful sent plus it's good for cooking with). But also had some faliure on my gladiolas. Well that is all for now. It is great hearing from all the other gardeners. Thanks for the warm welcome. Hafa Adai! Which is hello and good-bye in Chamorro.

Hi, Pearl, I think I remember you looking for oleander cuttings, is that correct? I still have a big old bush with fragrant creamy flowers if you want them, but will have to look up when to make the cuttings, as I think it's late summer. I also love sages. Maybe we'll trade. And if you're a different Pearl, that's just fine. Aimée
