Today I was notified that this blog has reached 100 followers! I am very grateful to all of you, all over the world.
This blog started as way to link family to our travels. It is now more of a garden blog. As a huge thank you to all of you, I send you this red rhododendron – prolific and special – may your own writings and blogging be abundant and extraordinary!
Record rainfall over the last few months have prevented me from spending time in the garden. We have had snow, wind, hail and low level flooding! What a winter!
I guess this little fellow is waiting patiently for my return. Shortly, I will be able to show off my new veggie patch and restored chicken house – now a potting shed! Waiting for the sun and some warm weather. Look out for my posts soon.
