IT'S ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Howdy!! Maddie here........just checking in briefly with my gardening fence buddies to let ya'll know I'm alive and partially well now living in Greeneville, Tennessee just 38 miles northeast of where I used to live. Surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest and sitting in a bowl of green, I've found and am renting an old house in the older part of Greeneville where the landlady has told me "plant what you want to, just leave a few paths!"!! still unpacking, and have some of my cacti and succulents and a few pots of perennials, I picked up my tree peonies that were loaded with buds at Ethyl's house last week. the cold temperatures didn't phase them after I potted them into huge containers and put them against the south facing window of the downstairs outside. after my gardening and landscaping friend straightens things out with her family issues, I hope to get all of my dug up perennials and shrubs and my garden cart and fairies that she took to her place. I hope. more of that later if things go wrong. keep a good thought for me, and I've hit two of the local nurseries with my expertise but nothing yet. Me Englishman is searching for work as well, we've gotten the younger teenager in the local high school and the landlady and her husband are sweet people.......artists and old hippies.........brought the two dawgs and two of the felines with us, plus 4398 boxes assorted collection of my life's load. will eliminate as I unpack. but won't let the Horticulture and Fine Gardening and other gardening magazines and books (boxes and boxes of those LOL) go anywhere but on shelves. anyone have some old desks or tables I could have ? I had to leave my computer desk behind as well as the nice expensive computer desk, but I have chairs to sit upon..........no t.v., no internet (library and sometimes usage at the local employment office) and no landline....plenty of movies and 13 stuffed books of cd's and I can pull my favorite station to listen to awesome music (WNCW.org) so Aunt Maddie is still around there somewhere for the NPR station. feeling better every day and hope to write gardening stuff more the next time. Me BLOOD LILIES are in complete bloom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I located an Ivory Prince hellebore at the local Lowes which since Gardengal didn't have time to send it a few times back, I snapped up. still love you all and miss you tremendously. keep touch, and holler back at me

I hope you love the new place to death, sounds lovely physically. If you eventually decide you want the world wide web back, the cost of satellite internet has come way down. After some reports on its speed and reliability, Granny Artemis and I stopped worrying about continued access if we make the often considered move to a rustic area alongside Mima Mounds. It no longer matters if a place lacks DSL through landlines!
I often ponder what I'd take from the garden if we make the move. Probably all the more obscure rhodie species and hybrids not in commercial production, the jack in the pulpits, trillium species, and cyclamens, and maybe a patch of the PINK english bluebells which are the pinkest I've ever seen and which I found growing along a backroad ditch, and the tukrkscap tiger lilies.
There'd still be so much left behind new owners of the old manse would notice any holes. The bigger worry is new owners wouldn't want such dense planting and would take out some rare or beloved shrubs so they can play croquet or god knows what.
