Hi! I'm Emily - I also answer to Mim. I'm from eastern Iowa and I joined to get some advice because I'm not so good at the plants thing, but I really like plants. I will soon be closing on my house (I'm buying the house that I currently rent) and am wanting to do extensive landscaping to make the yard more usable. I've filled in a couple of my must-haves for planting and am working on getting some borders and mulch in. I'm going to head over to the appropriate forum with more details. Nice to meet you all!
