One Year Blogiversary

What my little gardening blog has taught me:

Blogging is a great creative outlet

You are able to share your passion with others who have a similar interest

It is educational. I've learned so much by reading blogs

It provides inspiration to you and others

I started this blog to chronicle our garden at our new home. Leaving my old garden was hard. I felt attached to it. I knew that someone would enjoy it and find pleasure in it. 

What is it about gardeners that is so special? Gardeners tend to have a greater appreciation of nature and beauty in the world. They tend to look at blooming weeds as flowers. They pay attention to the seasons and wildlife around them. Gardening is nurturing. It keeps us grounded and connected.

A big thank you to all that follow this blog. It has been a pleasure reading your comments. It is nice to know there are fellow gardeners out there that can relate to the joys and trials of gardening.


  1. Happy Blogiversary!!

  7. Hi, I'm new here but Congrats! I'd also like to make the quick comment on one line you wrote, "They tend to look at blooming weeds as flowers."

    A belief I've long held is, 'There's No Such Thing as a Weed. It's Just a Plant In the Wrong Place at That Time!' And by that definition, ANY Plant can be a Weed, IF it's in the Wrong Place, And thereby making ALL Plants 'Flowers' also. So You're Right! Weeds Are Flowers!
