Re: Looking for Fiber Optic Grass..

I'm sure there are many things that would not come with me if we moved 
to Iowa- but I bet most everything I grew in Northeast Maine would live 
there! I would move my rugosa rose with me- as I know it can withstand 
winter and in fact would probably be much happier in Iowa than 
Sacramento.  I'm sure I'd survive winter (having grown up north of 
Buffalo), and we definitely get hot here in Sacramento, and you 
mentioned humidity in summer?  Kind of like Washington DC humidity 
maybe?  My hair and skin would love a little more humidity than we have 
now, but I bet you get more than a little bit. 
Funny, before I moved to California I always wondered how women on TV 
got their hair to look so great and stay looking like they wanted it.  
Well- it has nothing to do with shampoo, curlers, etc.  It has 
everything to do with the climate-  while my hair is drier here, it also 
looks better and behaves better than anywhere else I've ever lived.  
(Not that the garden cares about my hairdo- which of course is always 
jsut tied up in a ponytail when I'm outside anyway).
