Thank you, Thank you.

Thank you everyone for all the wonderful comments and encouragement. I am finally up and running. My site is called Charleston Gardening. It is going to be all about growing things in the Charleston area. I am by no means an expert but I do have a really green thumb and seem to be able to grow almost anything.

I dedicate my first post to my Grandmother Green who originally got me interested in gardening. Her favorite flowers were zinnias. When I was really young, I would spend entire days with her working in her flower gardens. I always left with a pocket full of seeds which I planted back at my parents house. They never did very well back then because Dad was a water miser. Most of my plants died from lack of water.

Every week my grandmother would pick several vases of zinnias and take them to church with her. There were always fresh flowers in our church as long as my grandmother was alive. So please visit my webpage and check it out. And if you feel so inclined sign up for email notices that will tell you when I post. I plan on posting at least twice a week, more if I have time,

Thanks again and have a great day,

Congratulations on your award that you got from Gotta Have Faith. I just happened upon your blog and found it whimsical, classic and full of great information.

So glad that you got your website up and running and I look forward to hearing more about your adventures in Gardening.

Now can you tell me how to get rid of those darn fat, green, grubs known as Horn worms off my tomatoes?

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Congratulations Greg! I love that you have such a love for flowers. And the story about your grandmother always stocking flowers at church is lovely. What a wonderful thing to be remembered for.

My mom was a florist before she retired, so growing up, our home was always full of fresh flowers. Such a luxury now - taken for granted then. I garden now, but nothing comapres to hers - she has peonies for miles. One of my favorites. ; )

How exciting! I'm going to have to sign up for those e-mails and see what I can learn from you. I hope you include pics!

PS - I finally found your blog Jamie Dawn's place! :)

This is wonderful. I'm determined to have a beautiful veggie garden next summer. I'll need all the help I can get.

Super! This is exactly why I referred Robin to you for her cucumber problem.
