Wrennie and Stricker remind me that I had completely bypassed the formal introduction phase at Gardener's Forum and jumped right into asking questions at the other forums like I owned the place... I am forgetful...

Anyway, I am married with 4 children (19, 15, 5 [surprise!], and 2), and 3 dogs (terrier mix age 13, and two boxers age 9). Just started caring what my front yard looks like so have begun planting things there... back yard is still the dogs' domain until they pass, so only going to plant vines on the fences there for now, and clematis on deck supports.

I like xeriscaping because I forget to water plants when it gets hot. My 5-year-old likes to garden, and grew his own tomatoes and sunflowers this summer (but wouldn't eat the tomatoes, although they were delicious). I also like the ornamental grasses.

I would like very much to eliminate 60% of the turf grass in my front yard as it is pathetic and I can't keep up with the weeds, so am replacing it with alternatives little by little. This year it was the hosta garden, and some little cut-out mulch landscaping. Next year, more shortish ornamental grasses I think.

Very glad to be here. This is one of the best gardening boards I have found so far.

Hey there roflol! wavey
I don't feel like I don't know you, because we've been rubbing elbows in some of the same threads for a couple months now. Still, it's nice finding out a little more about you, & what makes you tick! (Ummm... I have a question though... how do you pronounce your name "roflol" ...or is there an easier name that your friends here can call you?!) kissies

Thanks for the welcome, everybody.

Patty S, lol on everything you said. Amen on the not learning bits, I haven't either but I keep trying... I *think* I'm doing better with the second batch, certainly not expecting them to be little adults as much.

Re the boards, I'm a social butterfly online (not in real life, I have no social life in real life at this point) and find information in different places. But I like the interface here best. I also have the attention span of a gnat sometimes so like to look around if I don't find an answer right off, lest I forget what it was I wanted to know.

lol, Cindy.

BTW, I keep forgetting: My name is Terri.

And before I forget again:

Penny, we visited Toronto and I'd love to get back to Canada soon to see more of it (visited the priest who married us while we were at Niagara and in the neighborhood, he's up there now).

Patty S, I fell in love with Oregon, husband's uncle is in Grant's Pass and I've been trying to get husband to get a transfer to Oregon since we visited in 1990 (no luck so far).

Princessazlea, I'm a sucker for a British accent (hooked on Dangermouse, having massive withdrawal) and someday would love to visit England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and Australia, just to name a few.

Wrennie, badplanter: I was uprooted from Somerset, NJ, when I was 6 (39 years ago). I *can* still tawk the tawk, though. ;-)

ksgardnr: Howdy, neighbor!

Bottom line: Where I am is a nice place to visit but I don't want to die here. lol.

That's a good reason to get outta there & move to Oregon... the long growing season here is enough to make a person WANT to live! thumbup
