My posts are usually short in words...but, today, I'm making an exception!
A year ago, I logged my first entry and sent it out to Blogosphere. Not knowing, or even caring, where it landed or who would even read it. But, today, I'm writing for you! Yes, YOU!
Where did the time go? (obviously, a lot of it spent sitting here at my desk!) There's still so much to learn about blogging Do's (visit your friends often) and Don'ts (not proof-reading before hitting the 'publish' buttton...oops...see!) In a million years, I never thought blogging would engulf (and entertain) my waking hours. Please say you can relate....thank you!
The main reason I started this blog was to journalize my love of gardening. What I grow, how I grow it, why I need to grow it...blah, blah, blah...BUT the blogging experience has brought me so much more than that!
The list of Things I Learned from Bloggers would be a long one! I benefit so much from your wisdom, humor and even the occasional rantings...lol!

I cheerish all the friends I've made, the far away places I've traveled, the BEAUTIFUL gardens I've visited. From the Pacific West Coast to the tip-top mountains of Maine and all the states in between. Weekly trips to Malaysia, India, and even my birthplace, Vietnam, is not unusual. All from the comforts of my armchair. It's amazing, isn't it?! It feels like you're just outside my garden's gate, ready for a quick visit and chit-chat. Iced tea, anyone?
You understand my appreciation (to put it mildly!) for daylilies...you do, you really do!
And it humbles me that anyone, much less ALL OF YOU, visit and enjoy what I have to share.
As gardeners, each of us strives to perfect our craft, and through the world of blogging, we've become, not only better gardeners, but also good friends! I appreciate you all for making this experience so worthwhile for me.
