Hi, yourself Matt,
Thanks for the welcome.  Do you know another Seana Ames?  This is the first 
list I've ever belonged to.  I only know a few other people who spell their 
name the way I do.  It suprises me that there is another one with the same 
last name in the same area.
The weather here has been beautiful. We're not too cold yet.
I know people who live closer to downtown that have Rose of Sharon.  They

things like the Rose of Sharon do okay closer to downtown because of all the 
blacktop holding the heat.
I never can believe that it really is zone 5 here, but thats what all the 
garden catalogs say.  Every few winters it seems like we're closer to zone 3 
or some thing & then the rest of the time it seems much milder than zone 5.
Good luck with your driving school.

Take care and stay warm :-)
