You are welcome Bonnie. I have had many years experience in lawn and garden. I used to work for Walmart's Lawn and Garden Department, Builder's Sqaure Garden dept and several years with a Landscaping company.

I am here to help on the board along with all the
other green thumbs

I grew up in appartments so I didn't have much opportunity to garden- but I remember my Great Grandmother's garden. She had walkways and a bench and I just remember it being a magical place. Recently I went by the property she use to own and I was surprised that it was just a small city lot. To a little girl of about 6 or 7 - it seamed HUGE!!!!
Anyway, I want to grow some sunflowers this year! And get my rose bushes healthy and looking nice!

Great! I would love to see pics of your sunflowers in bloom.
I am planting caladuim and gladiola bulbs this Spring so they will be out by late May or June.

I want to have a patio filled with Caladiums. I don't know if I'll be successful with Gladiolas since they are recommended to plant in the ground but since I live in an aparment I am trying containers. This will really put my Green thumb to the test!

Sandra...I want to see pics of yours too!!! I don't know what a Caladium looks like, so I'm off to surf the net to find out
And thank you so much for the great links...I'm a green thumb wannabe too!!!

Bonnie, you grandmothers garden sounds just like what I am trying to do in my backyard....a retreat where there are whimsical surprises around each corner, with seating, sometimes on a bench, sometimes on a big rock

I am really excited about my yard this year

Shiela, You might remember them by their common name "Elephant Ears." That's what my mother called them when we were growing up.

I wanted to plant mine this week but because I'll be out of state for about a week this month, I do not want to take a chance the bulbs' soil will dry out. Once I plant bulbs they need watering about every 2 days or so. I am going to have to wait until I come back home for that.
