    Hi everyone :) My name is Alicia and I'm finally getting into gardening and such after 27 years on this earth. Makes a big difference when you finally have this big ol' mound of land that's yours that you can decorate however you please!

    Anywho, I think it's time to go lurk around a bit and hopefully in the coming months my activity will increase more. I'm in the process now of renovating my tired old landscaping beds out front in preparation for my budding ideas ;)

    Hi Alicia, welcome to GardenStew from north Texas where I would sell my first born for rain like you show in your other post. :eek:

    27 isn't very old for a beginning gardener, I had to wait until my 50's to get started. ;) But at least you did get started!!

    I feel so far behind considering all my friends are in their mid 30's and later and are already years ahead of me ;)

    And the rain! Bless the rain! We were in a drought status ourselves before July rolled through. We're finally getting it consistently and I'm not cursing it a peep!

    Lpyrbby: Welcome Alicia from Wisconsin. Lot's of knowledgeable, friendly, and fun people here. Also many gardeners from around the world. That makes it super interesting. Glad you found the Stew. :stew1:
    I just can't believe this crazy weather and now earthquakes in places that have rarely had them before. :rolleyes: Strange, very strange.

    It's good to have you here with us Alicia and this time may I welcome you from Scotland in the UK. Twenty seven is a good age to start a garden as you'll have lots of energy and ideas. If you should need any help then just ask as our members like to help each other out.
