Wow, little did I know you'd actually found me. I haven't gotten the hang of the whole blogging regularly thing. Maybe this growing community of bloggers will inspire me. Thanks for putting a link to my blog here! ~Marina, the latina gardener.

HI Susan,
I'm just north of G'ville. I have been trying to garden for a few yrs. now. I've learned quite a bit from a real great person farther north close to where I was born.
I enjoyed your blog & will return. Your gardening is very much like mine as we here in Fl. have mostly the same conditions.

Hi Lola...Welcome! We Florida gardeners have to stick together because gardening is definitely different in the Sunshine state. Glad to hear from you. I will add your blog to my list.
