My name is Merri and I live in Statham, GA. Which is about 12 miles from Athens (and I'm sure that most people know where that it).
I am a new gardener and if you had told me 6 years ago that I would be playing the dirt, I would have told you to go smack your mother, because she dropped you on your head as a child. But now, I've since "grown up" (not really), and purchased a house, as far as gardening goes.....well, as we say around these parts........"I'm in".
No turning back now! Full speed ahead. I have learned so much about so many things; nature, birds, wildlife in general, pest (bugs), and believe or not, I'm not afraid of spiders any more. I've just realized and you may think it's comical, but when I see a spider (only the bad ones), I take my shoe OFF to smack it. Why don't I just step on it? Isn't that unsual? Why are women like that? Do we just "not" want to feel or hear the squish? I'm not sure, but I know that I'm not afraid.
I am loving this new site that I just happened up on............through Facebook of all places! Looking forward to learning and meeting others from ALL over. Hope to bring a little laughter and sunshine into everyone's day. That's my way.........
Gosh....it's been quite a while since I've last visited here. I nearly forgot the how-to's about scooting around on Gardernersindex! Now that's sad.
I'll be back when I have more news. Just running short on time right now..........but have tons of wonderful things to share.
