In trade, I'm looking for:

unusual perennials for zone 7

nice trees and shrubs

garden statuaries

birdhouses--good sturdy ones that will hold up outdoors

oil paint supplies

New Book by Nicholas Sparks "Safe Haven"

DVD - "Last Song" - from Nicholas Sparks book of same title

DVD - "Dear John" - from N. Sparks book of same title

Interesting garden plaques, windchimes, etc.

different perfumes (no body sprays or Avon please). I haven't worn perfume in years, but I recently began wearing Jennifer Lopez Live and Jealousy X, both of which I love. I like something soft and feminine, not too strong or overpowering, not too floral, no musk, nothing Vanilla scented. I like Halston, Ralph Lauren, but I don't know what else.

I'm open to other suggestions as well. So if you see something in any of my posts that you're interested in, just let me know. I need to clear stuff out.

I'm interested in the Easy Herb book. What kind of perennials might you like in trade?

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

I am "perennial poor". LOL Most of my garden is daylilies, so I'm looking for other plants that bloom at different times or have exotic foliage so my gardens look great more than 2 months out of the year. Some things I'm looking for are:

Bridal Wreath Spirea
Climbing rose in any color but red
Unusual echinacea
Joe Pye Weed
Ornamental Grasses (newer varieties - I have most of the older ones)
Hosta Little Jay (my son's name) and variegated or yellow leafed hostas
Unusual mints
Tall Garden phlox (have lavendar already)
Unusual sedums
Elderberry - black lace or gold
Other unique plants

I noticed you're into veggies. If you have a nice selection of tomato, pepper, cucumber, etc seeds you'd like to trade instead of a perennial, That would be great too. I'm going to have a bigger edible garden this year and would love to try new things. I love salads and fresh produce, so any herbs and veggies would be great.

Thanks for responding to my post.

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)
