Anita, where in NY are you? If you want to see my pathetic attempts to restore some land in White Plains and maybe swipe a sample or two let me know.

OH my gosh, we are practically neighbors, I would love to see your garden (and swipe some samples). Unfortunately I have no way of reciprocating but I'm very good at oohing and aahing if that counts. I'm in Mahopac. My email address is maddogs518@aol. Thanks, Bob!

I just sent you an email via Garden Web. For some reason I couldn't get it to go straight through from my regular email. Let me know if you get the email or not. Oohing and aahing is fine but you might also recoil in horror when you see all the invasives I am trying to eradicate. If you look at some of the neighboring properties and a nearby county park, however, you will see a difference.

bob, is the land you are working on open to the public?
I've been itching to visit another native garden in my area - I'm located a bit west of you - right on the other side of the tappanzee bridge.

I hope I'm not being too rude asking

Bubble, of course you can visit. I'm hesitant to blanketly say it is "open to the public" at all times because I sometimes chase off people that act irresponsibly or illegally but law-abiding, well-intentioned visitors are welcome. Please don't visit after dark (except to attend a church function). I'll send you an email with the address.
