Hello from NE Texas


Hi, my name is Rose and I live in Texarkana, TX, would love to make friends with all interested in this area. I love gardening, and have a new yard to get my hands dirty in.
Which means I had to leave all my pretty flowers at my last home for the new owners. Right now I have hundreds of spider lilies, and daffodils, also some other lilly that has a bulb as big as a large onion. (I have ask the name of it from the local college landscape teacher and he just said it was a lilly.
I would like to trade for some cannas any color, Irisis any color, daylillies, etc.
Will post my have list and want list when I find it again.
But just wanted to say hi, and hope I get to know a lot of plant lovers in this area (and our tri-state area here covers a large area).
Rose

Hi Rose.

I might have some interesting Canna (multi-colored leaves, orange flowers) available once I get into the garden and thin out my patch a bit.

Thank you so much


If you do have any canna when you dig them out I would love to have them.....being a new garden builder at this house....it is hard because you have left so many of your beloved plants for someone else to enjoy. After the house sold I did ask if I could dig me some starter plants for where I was going but they said no ,.....that was the main reason they bought the house was the landscape......made me pround in a way but also sad that I had to leave so much behind.
Rose

Haha... Most of my neighbors have complimented me on my back yard jungle, but if I ever do sell this property, I will likely need to revamp/organize the back yard landscaping as it really has no rhyme or reason to it right now.

Hi Rose, nice to meet you! Oh I felt bad for you, leaving all those plants behind but that is quite a compliment that the new owners loved what you did with the property. And this is a new beginning and new gardening oportunities! What fun. Keep us updated.

Hi Rose,
I was raised in Longview, TX and Mom still lives at the same house. I now live in Knoxville, TN. but would love to trade some with you.

I will be back in Longview Feb and March of 2009. If you do not mind I will keep a note to contact you again then. I always go back to vist Mom and work in her garden beds. I get them ready for the next year so she can just enjoy them.

I have a long list of all she has I will be able to trade with once I'm there.
Glad to meet you and will contact you again in Feb.
