I am newly registered, but have followed the forum for quite a while. It is a lovely family, with brilliant people, good craic, and a heartwarming willingness to help us bring our land and our gardens into full glory.

You are a dear group, and I trust I can add to it as well as learn a lot.

I live in a lovely, peaceful, secluded spot that unfortunately has some very challenging ground - little topsoil and lots of rocks and shale. I am blessed, however, with a small band of livestock that give me an endles supply of compost, so have been barrowing load after load all over the place.

I like to encourage the wild flowers and wild medicine plants - Queen Anne's Lace, milkweed (for the monarch butterflies), some sweet little wild asters that bloom in the Fall, yarrow, wild azeleas, ox-eye daisies, and others I can't remember right now.

I live in an area of many old homesteads, mostly abandoned, but the flowers and plants put out over a hundred years ago still flourish, so I've done my share of seed and cutting snitching, and now have them here. I'd be happy to share seed from them if anyone would like them, and if it's possible to ship seed to places other than the US.

Sorry to go on so long. Seems to be in the blood of Southern women to talk too much. lol

Tessa
