Re: Plant ID/Clubs

First let me apologize for all the responses from old posts, I'm catching  up 
on email....or attempting to do such.
I think you will find this with any hobby or such.  You won't find  people 
with the same interests unless you put yourself into a group where like  minded 
people congregate.  There are millions of email lists, and you'll  find 
gardeners in all of them, but not until you join a gardening group will you  find 
someone that has the same level of interest.  This is the same with  
clubs/societies, etc.  When we first moved to Houston, our neighbors had  nice gardens, 
but none were plant-a-holics like us.  It wasn't until  meeting folks at 
nursery events, joining the Master Gardeners, etc. that we got  to know folks that 
were into it as much as we were. 
I didn't even know many of the groups were out there, and even to this day  
learn of events and groups that I wish I had known about years ago......so just 
 because you don't hear about them doesn't mean they do not exist.    Just 
like this group, I've learned so much from the plant and gardening  societies 
and groups I've been a member of, and met the most interesting  people.

I don't  know about the rest of you, since many of you are in the business
it's  likely your friends are gardeners too. You belong to clubs and so
forth.  But I don't know anyone in person (excluding y'all) who does what I
do. A  few people enjoy their roses, they have a couple tomato plants in  the
summer, and that's it. I don't see anything around town that looks like  my
yard - there are nice landscapes to be sure but they are things that  the
paid-for gardeners can mow & blow. Maybe it's all hidden in back  yards...
Anyway I think that as people get older and have more free time  they
appreciate the process more.
