My PASSION for gardening is none other than undescribable....My favorites include Cyads, Brugmansia, Daylily’s, Tropicals, Banana’s, Elephant Ears, Canna’s, Ferns, Hostas, Epiphytes, Dahlias, Camelias, Aroids, Organic gardening, composting, vegatable gardening, all houseplants and anything big, unusal and exotic. I am an avid believer that learning is a life long process. That is why before joining I scanned the Q&A...stayed up for hours...only to find that there are people out there who have the same obsession’s and passion’s as me. My family used to think I was a little crazy because I tried to create Utopia in my living room. I truly believe I AM a plantaholic, but the beauty of it is that I find it to be my inspriration. The other day I had an experience that I think would delight any gardener....My Red Sister Cordyline bloomed a new leaf...I actually saw it unfold before my very eyes...It was amazing....I thought you only got that in time-lapsed films.
I felt very fortunate and blessed to have experienced such a
God-giving anomaly. It has furthered the reason why I am "Taking Root" in gardening.

I enjoy anything to do with nature and the outdoors, I am also a pet owner and have several large and small aquariums, enjoy crafts, and just added a few farm animals. You can learn so much from nature. I enjoy the sport of fishing and go every chance I can get. I also enjoy all sports as well as horse-back riding. I’m on about 4 acres at the present time but my dream is to own a small farm someday. I enjoy this site and wish there was a instant chat line....this is the best forum! I look forward to learning and sharing info from everyone here.

I SHIP PRIORITY MAIL WITH CONFIRMATION NUMBER AND WOULD APPRECIATE IF YOU DO THE SAME......I TRY TO SHIP ON WED. OR THURS. SO YOU WILL RECEIVE IT BY THE WEEKEND.

ALTHOUGH DUE TO MY HEAVY WORK SCH. I CAN GET A BIT DELAYED IN SHIPPING...BUT YOU WILL GET YOUR BOX....IF I AGREED TO IT THEN YOU CAN COUNT ON IT!

And a BIG THANK YOU to ALL who have traded with me....too, many to mention but as I look around in my garden I know where everything came from.... It’s wonderful to have a garden filled with things from all across the country!
