I guess  my garden is a mess (not guess, know) but I enjoy things that appear 
to liketo  grow for me.

Me, too, Auralie.  I have put a lot of effort in replicating an  antebellum 
garden, and, with the exception of a Chinaberry tree, I've  succeeded.  Of 
course that means that every spring I pull out more plants  than I keep.  In fact 
I'm still pulling out touch-me-nots (Impatiens  balsamina) because they reseed 
all the time. :-) I've gotten very interested in  gardening history, and 
living in a town that is on the national registry of  historic places this seemed 
the way to go.  My flower beds are always a  mess, but they do reflect an era 
in our history and my personality as  well.  BTW, a friend of mine is giving 
me some berries from her chinaberry  tree.  Now all I have to do is find a 
place to put it.  My house is  just as cluttered with memorabilia as my yard is.
