I'v been into serious gardening for about 5 years now and the gardens are looking really well these days. I come from a family of gardeners my father being one most of his adult life and I've been indoor gardening for many years now. My favorite indoor plant being African Violets. I'd like to get into trading African Violet leaves now as I have a nice collection started and would like to add to it. I'm the mother of 3 grown kids, now, all in college at varying levels. We also raise and show afghan hounds and 1 gordon setter and when I'm not spending weekends plant hunting, we're at dogs shows up and down the east coast.
I'm also very active in canine rescue organizations and that keeps me pretty busy what with foster and transports. So if I am late getting my trade out to you please be patient I always come through, just sometimes late.

Here are some links to a few other "hobbies" that I have as well:

How I Spend My Spare Time

My current passion for plant collecting is named hostas, daylilies, delphiniums and HollyHocks but I welcome anything that will grow and flourish in our front gardens which are pretty well shaded and dry hard soil. This is always a learning experience and I've learned alot.
