I am not exactly sure how to acknowledge my thank you's to those who comment. I have been trying to do so within the comment section, which is really the only way I can see to do it. I do hope I am following the correct blogging etiquette. I know it does take a bit of time and effort to make a comment and I do really appreciate it when someone is motivated to do so. I think most of us who blog LOVE to get comments. I try to remember that as I surf your blogs. Before I had my own, I never left any comments... just surfed in and then back out. It finally occurred to me that if I enjoy a blog, I should let the author know -- if for no other reason, than to (selfishly) motivate the writer to post frequently so I have new reading material! So a big THANK YOU to everyone who has commented. I have to leave now to go to a retirement dinner for DH's work friend. I don't think I will know anyone there, but I am sure I will still have a pleasant evening (unless I get stuck next to someone who hardly speaks---don't you hate that? Trying to make small talk with someone who only answers "yes" or "no".
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
