Hi, my name is Janet and I live in Southeast Alaska in Ketchikan. We are the first stop on most cruise ships to Alaska. Our average mean temp here is about 45. We usually don't get much snow in the winter and not even many freezing days. It rains about 15ft a year here. This year and last summer have been the best in recorded history of our town. And our gardens show it. Our soil loves Rhododendrens. We have so many around town that this year I took a little trip around while they were in bloom and took many pictures. I am a novice in gardening but love what I do get to do. Several years ago I planted a couple poenys and they inspired my interest even more. They were gorgous this year! I also love to take pictures and take many of my flowers. I found your site because I was searching the web for care of the peony after bloom. My hushand put in a arbor for me a couple years ago and we planted a honeysuckle and it is almost covered already. It has a clamatis with it but that is getting strangled this year. Not sure what to do. I am looking forward to this site and meeting new people!
