I love getting the newsletter as I'm usually stuck at work and it's my escape to one of my passions: gardening! However, I truly wish that it showed more plants (especially the Bloom of the Day) for more .. temperate? zones. Usually every single drop-dead gorgeous plant that is shown is almost ALWAYS a zone 8-11.. you know, there's more to the world than the equator! Some of us poor schmucks that live in "colder" zones love plants too! (and I find it incredibly unfair that most of Washington state all the way up into Canada and on the eastern seaboard is classified as a "warmer" zone than poor pathetic me, in the Denver CO metro! *sigh* I hate being a zone 4-5 :( :( :( Especially when one of my co-workers, who lives, as the crow flies, about 12 miles north is a zone 6! We have winter here for only about.. oh.. 2 months, and, of that, only a few days are bitterly (-10 to -20) cold. Yet, that's enough to wipe out most cool plants. :( )

I love reading all the articles.. I have just SOOO much to learn!
