I'm a life member of NARGS, New Mexico Native Plant Society, and member of several other botanical and horticultural societies, but have been absent from the social scene for several years.
tell us about you!
Ok I'm going to hop on in here and introduce myself. A member of NARGS for four or five years now, initially the Berkshire Chapter, but moved two years ago and now in the Adirondack Chapter. A complete garden novice and still not experienced enough to differentiate between a good idea and a totally outrageous adventure in gardening. I want to attempt all gardening types, genre, except monoculture and chemically dependent.
I am totally overwhelmed by the whole alpine/rock garden experience and very excited at the prospect of learning more so keep on postin'
I tried to upload a photo from my imac, but it doesn't happen. I use the 'browse' link next to "I will load my own photo", but it doesn't load after clicking on "Change Profile" at the bottom of the page. What am I doing wrong?
I am a little late in the quire, but not last, I hope.
Hello everyone. Many of you are probably familiar with my name from the NARGS wiki. I have been a member of NARGS about 15 years but just recently joined AGS. I have been a director of NARGS this past three years but my term ends shortly. In addition, I belong to the American Iris Society and SIGNA (Iris breeding is one of my many passions). I am also the chair of the Newfoundland Chapter...several of you were here in 2005 when we hosted the annual meeting. For those of you who have not, St.
Time to introduce myself to this exciting new forum (and to extol the virtues of contributing as opposed to simply lurking) in the hope that this may encourage other, more reticent, members to do likewise.
I am Cliff Booker - an aged alpine reprobate from across the pond - an enthusiastic (nay maniacal) NARGS, AGS, SRGC and AC of BC member from East Lancashire (near Rochdale), with many years of alpine growing, slaying, propagating, exhibiting, photographing, lauding, lecturing and loving behind me.
Great to see the forum go live! Goes nicely with the spiffy look and content of the updated website, too :-)
So the Forum goes live - the latest of the upgrades that webmaster Hugh has been pushing through over the last few months. And I thought I’d get in right at the beginning - and anyway I'm in a different timezone over here in England. It's coming up to 1 o'clock lunchtime (5 hours ahead of EST) and it's bright and sunny here in East Yorkshire (originally I'm from London) and there's snow on the ground again which is unusual here.
