I'm new to gardening and I'm grateful for all the great information I've gotten from GW.

I love vines. I'm addicted to Morning Glories and Clematis. I'm sure this next season I will find even more vines that strike my fancy.

I love purples, blues, bright pinks.
I'm trying to plant things that will attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

I am in the process of eradicating the dreaded scourge: english ivy! The previous owner had loved ivy and for the last 5 or more years it had just taken over. It had probably been there for more than 50 years. The roots at the "motherload" were as thick as my wrist and broke my saw blade three times.

I'm finally down to bare ground in my backyard and will have to investigate shade loving plants for that area.
Right now, I think it will develop into a fern/hosta garden.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z5, Indiana
