|These tulips keep coming back!|
For the 2,500th time, I am posting on my blog to share with you a bit of my garden.
I've been thinking for a few days about what I should write for this particular milestone post. Should I post as normal and just mention at the end, "Oh, by the way, this is the 2,500th post"?
Or maybe I should write a retrospective post with links back to some of my favorite posts?
I was most assuredly not going to let the garden fairies write this 2,500th post, though it was close, as they wrote the 2,499th post.
I thought and thought, for at least two days, and finally decided I would write this simple letter to you, Dear Readers, to thank you for all your support during the years I've been posting my thoughts and exercising my writing muscles on this blog.
Along the way, I've met some of the most amazing, kind, considerate, generous, funny, and smart gardeners, now friends, who have changed my gardening life forever. You all know who you are. You all are the best.
And because of these friends, I've left my garden many times now to meet with other gardeners in places as far flung as Austin, Chicago, Buffalo, Raleigh, Asheville, Dallas, Tucson, Quebec City, Pittsburgh, Pasadena and soon Atlanta.
I don't think anyone who knows me in real life would argue that this blog hasn't just changed my garden, hasn't changed my life, because it simply, subtly, definitely has.
To all who've come along here to read about my garden and my thoughts on gardening, from the downright drivel to "I don't mean to brag™" award-winning posts, thank you for your support, encouragement and comments.
What's next for my blog and what's next for me? Time will tell. It's spring, a new season for the garden. I have plans for this year's garden to be the best one yet. I always do. I have plans to keep posting on this blog. I have plans...
With a shared love of gardening,
