      Thanks for leading me to your blog too Charlie,I’ll be visiting often.I think when I’ve exhausted my garden knowledge I could fill in health tips: your’s are as much appreciated as your gardening experience.

Finally my garden is starting to grow in the directions of my dreams and my dreams continue to expand. I enjoy your writing and pictures very much.

I’d plant the tried and true easies and get blasted… can’t imagine what your drastic move has been like! Have you looked into joining a local garden club? When I was a young mom with no spare cash that was my one treat for myself. I learned so much from those ladies and received many high performance plants from them. Keep up the good work on your own blog, it’s very enjoable and I’d like to see more photo’s of your place. There can never be too many photos, that’s the best part of browsing blogs to me.
