    Hi Alka, welcome to the Stew from north Texas. Have fun looking around the forums, lots of beautiful pictures and great information.

    Besides loving flowers, do you have any other hobbies, how about pets?

    hello Toni

    Thanks for your welcome Toni!
    Besides flowers, I love reading, writing, gardening (not much to do right now though...winters are fast approaching). I like dogs but I do not own one. I also like the idea of having a bird for a pet, but have never had the guts to actually get one.

    I have been looking around the site and find it really interesting.

    Will look around some more :)

    Hello Alka

    A warm welcome from sunny SOuth Africa where we are jsut getting ready for the summer.
    I am sure you will enjoy spending some time to Stew with the Stewbies. Stewbies are a great bunch. No better forum of this kind in my opinion that the GardenStew.

    The Illinois I know is Chicago. Along with Boston and New York, the most attractive cities in USA. Gardening in such places is restricted to weather impositions. However, a lot is always possible when there is the will. Welcome to our site...........
