Title: Rock Garden Perth Ontario Canada
Post by: Judy Wall on January 12, 2009, 12:39:39 PM
Hi from a Newbie to SRGS.   I finally took Kristl Walek's advise and joined SRGS, as she speaks highly of your group.
I opened my own small garden center in May 2000 in Perth, Ontario Canada, USDA zone 5a. Over the years I have developed an overwhelming interest for alpines, rockery type plants as my particular interest. I joined our local Ottawa Valley Rock Garden society back in Dec 2001, then Nargs, Ontario Rock Garden, The Alpine Gardener now SRGS as my love affair with small more unique unusual plants keeps growing. There is so much more I want to learn, and experiment with. Looking forward to joining your group. Pictures of my gardens can be seen on my website http://www.rockwallgardens.com.........Judy

Welcome to the Forum Judy. I enjoyed looking at your Web Site and I think you will find the Forum both enjoyable and informative. I think you will also find others who are interested in stained glass too.

Another hearty welcome, Judy.
You couldn't have wished for a more fitting person to introduce you to this very special place than dear Kristl.

Welcome, Judy, great to have you join us. Since any friend of Kristl's is a friend of ours, the welcome is especially warm  ;D
Unless I am very much mistaken, I think that Kristl has mentioned your website and activities somewhere in this forum in the past... the stained glass rings a bell..... my husband and I are collecotrs of old stained glass, from whole windows to little rondels!
