You mentioned your house plants... what are they? I'm looking forward to getting to know you & hearing about what you have (or hope to have) in your gardens ... & of course, about your kids, pets, etc.
I have 2 kids. A son, 13 and a daughter,6. I also have a cat and a dog.
I only have a few house plants
at the moment.
I have 2 Dracaena's. One is the Corn Stalk plant
and the other is a Marginata (I actually have several of these if you count by the number of stalks, lol). I also have a Mother In Laws Tongue and an Umbrella tree
I plan on getting more in the future, but I have been focusing on some landscaping ideas for my yard. It's a good size yard, and most of it gets full sun. The front yard is pretty bare, with the exception of some hedges across the front porch, a Japanese Maple at on corner and a regular maple in front, on the west side. The east side/front part of my yard is bare as well, except one Maple that is a bit larger, and a lilac
I also have a fenced in area in the back. The only surviving plants
I see back there are some mums (and one that I haven't identified yet next to the driveway). There were more, but they weren't taken care of after my mom passed away. My Dad just mowed over everything. He isn't a "plant
I also have some stray rose
at along one side of the house, I'm looking up some option on what to do with those now, lol.
I realize I am babbling on here. Im sure I will have plenty of questions for the forum for ideas, help,etc. I know I will need it!
Thanks again for the welcome,
