Re: zone map

That's so true and there are things like soil types and microclimates
that would be almost impossible to identify on a large scale. My friend
Elaine can grow beautiful hydrangeas just ten miles away in Kaufman
because she has beautiful sandy loam. They can't handle my clay at all.
I'm fixing to get her for her b-day next week her very first viburnum.
She always raves about mine (as her husband rolls his eyes) every time
she comes over. If mine thrive, hers will do twice as well!! But that's
what you learn by doing, no map can anticipate such differences. And I
agree w/ you - we are truly fortunate to have each other. What a
blessing you all are to me!!
