I joined Blotanical on December 3, 2007. Little did I know, at that time, that just four days later my world would be turned upside down, all of which led to one of my very first Blotanical posts.
Thankfully, one growing season later, both my grandson and Blotanical are thriving. Life and gardens seem parallel that way — a period of chaos is almost always followed by a period of calm growth. We plant, we tend, and we reap.
So, after one full growing season, I thought I’d toss a bouquet to Stuart, for all his hard work, and for having the inspiration in the first place to create this wonderful space where we gardeners can gather and share. And to thank all of you who take the time to give encouragement, to share ideas, to give pats on the back, and who share your chaos and your growth.
I’ve learned so much in one growing season from the Blotanical community — about both gardening, and life. Plant. Tend. Reap.
