Hello all!

I just wanted to send a quick message introducing myself, as I'm new to
PBS.  I am Ryan Wilson, from Portland, Oregon (USDA zone 8b).  My wife
Amanda and I began gardening seriously when we bought our first house 2 1/2
years ago, quickly eradicated all of the grass that covered the property,
and started planting a garden.  We started mainly as backyard vegetable
gardeners, but have since become quite fascinated with anything that we can
possibly get away with growing in our mild, Pacific Northwest mediterranean
climate.  I'm lucky enough to have landed a dream job at Cistus Nursery, so
I get to spend most of my day (and nights) playing with plants!  In our
garden, bulbs share their garden space with our favorites: Arailiaceae,
Lauraceae, Agavaceae and, unfortunately, squirrels.

Anyway, I'm really excited to be a part of this group, and I look forward to
sharing my gardening experiences and questions with all of you, and vice
