I have a neice and her family that live in Republic, a little town attached to Springfield! My daughter and her husband live just south of you in Arkansas. I think you have found a great place to call home! The trees alone are so beautiful and the rock cliffs with all the color makes it a beautiful place to live. Branson is close and a fun thing to check out.
My all time favorite garden is the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis! I think I have been there in every season and I think every one has so much beauty. I hope when you get time you can take a weekend and visit! Even in the middle of winter, the Japanese gardens are amazing!
Did you get into a house or rent an apartment? Will you have a garden?
We moved to Houston from Rockport, Tx 3 months ago. I year before that we had lived in western Ok for 16 years on 2 acres. We now are in an apartment and it will be ok for a short period of time but I miss having my own dirt. My sister lives pretty close so I have helped her plant a winter garden. My brother lives out in suburbia and needs help with his landscaping. He is having big problems with shrubs dying. His landscaper/lawn mowing man says it is root rot. I don't know much about that. I have never lived where we had fungus or root rot problems. Does anyone have any recommendations on what to do? He is ready to plant plastic plants!!! He is not a gardener at all but wants his place to look good.
Thank you for any ideas!

Unpacking is progressing. One car now fits in the garage. One cat is settled in (the other is still freaked out). We are finding our way around the southeast quadrant of town pretty well now, and we got a washer and dryer delivered today (so yeah for clean clothes!!).
