I love almost all plants, excepting houseplants (I kill them), cacti (too wet here), and I have a smallish yard, so I don't need any more shrubs or trees.

Here is what I'd really like to add to my garden:

named hostas, especially smalls and minis
pulmonarias
epimedium
trillium
any yellow or chartreuse leaved plants
toadlilies with yellow flowers
fairy wands
Japanese irises
Siberian irises (I have Ceaser's Brother only)
Clematis (I have sweet autumn only)
Ferns that don't go out of control
unusual gingers
And the best - whatever is in your garden that you would love to share.

My name comes from another of my great loves which is collecting equestrian Olympic pins. In 2006 the Olympics will be in Turin, Italy, and Italian pins are another one of my passions. I love to read VC Andrews and that type of book. Believe it or not, my husband (age 54) is really into Neopets!

Other things I love are tin ware, anything Italian, anything garden related, and snappy earrings. I'm just getting over cancer, and have VERY short hair, so those adorable earrings they have out now are just my thing. I used to be on the drab, neutral side, but no more. Life's too short!!
