I live in Houston, TX, just north of I-10 in the Cypress-Fairbanks area.

I am ’long-term’ married, with 2 grown sons and two dogs. We have moved frequently, so resources like GardenWeb make it easier to adjust to new locations.

My gardening style would best be described as ’eclectic’---though my neighbors may sometimes think it’s ’eccentric’. I’m drawn to heritage or forgotten plants that are not sold in nurseries.

I love to attract butterflies and birds to my yard---especially hummingbirds. And I plant lots of ’sacrificial’ herbs and flowers for butterfly catterpillars to munch! I love to grow herbs, flowers and daylilies.

Other than gardening, I enjoy genealogy research and family history, I love to spoil my grandchildren, and I’m trying to teach myself German so I can someday visit my grandparents’ relatives in Germany.

I live in: United States

My zone is: Houston zone 8B

My favorite forum 1 is Texas Gardening.
