I am, like some of my plants, a transplanted New Yorker (Brooklyn). I now live in Central Florida. I was a major collector of house plants and when my hubby, son and I relocated to Florida in 1988, I had over 100 plants to transport. My son, who was 17 at the time, thought I was nuts to bring them all down here, but they were my ’babies’. I could not desert them.
Needless to say, most of them ended up either in the garden or dead from the heat and sun.
I have become and orchid collector and have almost 100. I can’t pass up on a bargin from Lowe’s, HomeDepot or Target when they have them on sale. My newest passion is Brugmansia or Datura. I received a trade last year of a yellow brugmansia cutting and fell in love with these majestic plants. I also have a double lavender Datura that is quite pretty.
My aim to to get rid of all the grass (weeds to mow) and replace it with plants. I believe it’s more fun to see flowers in bloom than grass. Come visit my website. You may find something you like.
Happy Gardening to all my new friends at Gardenweb.

My zone is: 9 SE FL
