    I came across this forum while searching for a group that would provide home decorating ideas, and I must say, it seems like such a friendly place. I'll try to update my profile and start a new post soon, but for now, I'd like to say hello to all! :-D

    By the way, my name's Cat, and I'm currently helping my fiance' redecorate his house--hence, the active interest in home decorating ideas. I've always liked looking at furniture, though, and I get a mental picture now and then of what my ideal room would look like, but for the most part, I seem to be unable to tie things together. LOL.

    Anyway, I hope to hear from some of you. :-D

    Thanks to all who replied! I've been browsing the site and I've already found tons of interesting discussions.

    Are most of the members in this board from the US? I'm from an Asian country. :-D

    What's the weather like in your part of the world? It's summer over here, and it gets really humid in the afternoons. Just wondering.

    Sam here in Scotland it's spring and is lovely and mild at the moment with plenty of sunshine. Yes, most of our members are from the US but we have folks from many other countries too. :D It's lovely to hear all about other peoples gardens and what they can grow. I look forward to hearing about the plants you have in your country that I haven't. :-D

    Hi Sam. :-D Wow, I'd like to see what spring, autumn and winter would look like. We only have sunny and rainy weather here. Not too romantic, hehe.

    I don't know much about plants, but we have lots of coconut trees here, and mango trees as well.

    Oh, and I'm from the Philippines. I realize I wasn't too specific in my last post. =)

    Ah, and I wish I had YOUR climate. *lol*
    Although my summer conditions sound like your description
    :D We do have at least one other member living in the Philippines,
    I just love seeing the many beautiful, tropical plants that she's growing.

    Hi zuzu. :) I checked the link to your garden, it was very pretty. It must take a lot of hard work to get the flowers to grow so beautifully.

    Me and my finace kind of have enough trouble getting grass to grow on their backyard. I think it's because they let the leaves from the mango tree they have planted there dry out on the soil. Makes the soil acidic, or I mistaken? Anyway, it's great to hear from you! Thanks for the warm welcome.
