    Hi, my name is Heather, 30 years old and I live in Billings, Montana. I am a stay at home mom and I love to scrapbook,bake and chase my 2 year old son. I "inherited" some flowers,shrubs and trees with the house my husband and I bought in 2002.It also came with about 10-12 rose bushes. I am new to gardening and was pretty sure I would kill everything but so far they are still trudging along. I planted some tulips and they are blooming wonderfully! Can't wait til my roses bloom and I can post pictures and hopefully ya'll can tell me what kind of roses they are. :-D

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and am looking forward to visiting with all of you. Am I the only one from the states? I'm from Nebraska. I'm married with 2 grown sons who have recently made my husband and I grandparents. . . thus the name ~ nanasheila. Two granddaughters. One is 2 1/2 and the other is 8 months. I began gardening only 3 years ago. Flowers and garden art mainly. I still don't feel as if I know what I'm doing. But it's fun learning.

    [​IMG] to GardenStew Nanashiela. :-D

    We have quite a few folks from over the pond here on the forums and it's lovely to say Hi to another. :D

    If you have any questions just let either Frank or myself know and we'll see what we can do to help you out.
    Why not put yourself on our map and add your birthday to our calendar? We even have a free blog facility here for our members and some wonderful wildlife cams.

    Try this site Nanasheila:

    http://heathersanimations.com/

    I hope you find something that you like. :-D

    Please note:

    Heather's Animations does NOT allow hotlinking so make sure you put the piccie you want into your photo album and then transfer it into your profile here. :)

    Many welcomes, NanaSheila! Don't worry - we were all new at one time and had to learn all the little tricks to running these things. It's pretty simple once you have the hang of it. Glad to meet you! :D
