RE: Now Welcome Liz!- was-cicada pictures

Liz: How old are your kids? My three are almost 12, nearly 10 (this
week!), and 8 and they are all gardeners. Each of them gets to pick
plants for the garden that are then "theirs" and it really helps them to
feel like they "own" the gardens, too. My youngest is perhaps the most
interested in it...she has the biggest section of the garden of the
three of them and loves to show people "her" plants. :-)

Thanks Donna.<br><br>I haven't done any water gardening yet but I think
that is what I'm looking<br>forward to the most. I'm trying to read up a
lot on water gardens and try to<br>find out everything I can. Maybe that
way I can keep my mistakes to a<br>minimum. I know I'll still make
them.<br><br>I spent part of my time growing up in Maine on a lake. I
love being on the<br>water and I'm hoping that I can recreate at least
part of that feeling at<br>our new house.<br><br>I haven't done a large
amount of gardening in the past. I had a small<br>vegetable garden at
our old house and some basic plants around the front of<br>the
house.<br><br>I have just recently become a stay at home Mom and I'm
looking forward to<br>doing more gardening and involving my kids in
it.<br><br>Liz in PA<br><br>PS- I love chatty groups<br><br>Re-elect

pictures<br><br>Welcome Liz!:)<br><br>Glad you joined us and hope you
can tolerate the chattiness of this<br>group. You will not find a more
knowledgeable and friendly group!<br><br>I would think between all of
us, if you run into a problem, just ask...<br>someone here should know
the answer. (they answered enough of mine!)<br><br>I built this house in
97 and it was a real experience for me. I was a<br>shade gardener, but
there wasn't a tree on the property, so I learned<br>really quick how a
plant can fry in the sun LOL!<br><br>What is your favorite type of
gardening... mine is watergardening...<br>probably cause you don't have
to worry about watering the plants....<br><br>Donna<br><br>><br>> Thanks
Kitty. I guess I just jumped in without an intro. I am new<br>here.
I<br>> just joined today.<br>><br>> I'm looking forward to learning a
lot from everyone on the list. I<br>will<br>> admit that I don't have
much experience to share but I will once we<br>move<br>> into our new
house (once it's finally

built). WE have bought 7 acres<br>and<br>> are<br>> building a house on
it.<br>><br>> I plan to have a lot of fun with all types of gardening.
We're lucky<br>to<br>> have<br>> a variety of enviroments on our new
property. We have wetlands, shaded<br>> areas<br>> very sunny areas,
rather dry areas. It will be fun to learn all the<br>> things<br>> I can
do (and I'm sure I will make many mistakes along the way).
I<br>also<br>> look<br>> forward to finally have a house that will get
good light so I can grow<br>> plants inside.<br>><br>> Thanks for
welcoming me.<br>><br>> Liz in
