Roll call for where you live

Xtal(z8b Temple. TX)May 27, 2013

I'm looking to find some people in my area that I can give some plants to when I have extras. Or someone who might come by the house and get them. I must have posted this in the wrong forum.

One can never have enough 'plant friends'. We all suffer from chlorophyll deprivation to one degree or another. Plants have also brought us through some bad times, remind us of relatives, enjoy their blooms/fragrance/beauty. We all enjoy sharing. So, I'm looking to see who else might be near by.

I'm in Temple. Is anyone else close by?

Hi, Carrie, if you like to get together w/GW friends, I will be up there in August to deliver my daughter back to college. Maybe we could catch lunch somewhere. She will be there for quite a few years if her plans hold and I would like to make some friends in the Denton area.

Great idea. I'm south of Dallas. I was just wondering this weekend if anyone wanted any of these Texas Ash seedlings I am pulling up everywhere. So I started a trade list on my profile, first time I even noticed it was there.

Marti, you could also post it in the 'exchanges' where more people are likely to see it.

I'm near Carrie, in Lewisville which is pretty much half-way between Dallas and Denton. My parents are in Universal City, but we were in San Antonio near 410/I-10 for over 30 years. It's been an adjustment changing zones!

OT but I do love Azle :-) Such a peaceful neighborhood full of old growth trees.

Seamommy is right up the road too.

Now it looks like all you guys are lucky having a gardener close by. I don't have anyone near me. Darn. I was hoping to find someone nearby that I could trade plants with... oh well. Well, I hope you guys kept notes of who's close to you... it will come in handy one day.

Does anyone want to fill in for a gardener in absentia?

I'll be spending the summer in Bayview, near the southernmost tip of the state. This is where I do most of my gardening, even though I spend approximately 1 month out of the year there.

xtal, I bet someone nearer to you will chime in soon!

Trying to remember, seems like we may have Belton and Waco folks here for sure.

I know that I've been through Temple on the way to and from Austin and maybe when we go to Port Aransas. It's seems that it's pretty far from here.

I live in South Arlington. I'd be happy to get connected with people in the area. I'm 28 and I'm a computer technician and supervisor at Staples and my fiancee works at Lockheed Martin. We've been here about a year and I'm a bit of a social butterfly without any friend flowers, lol. Feel free to send me emails via my profile.
