I am sad to say that today I disabled the ability of anonymous comments. Now a person will have to be registered with blogger to post. I did this to eliminate spam commenters. I have noticed on a few other blogs comments that appear to be from spammers (advertising comments). I thought I would take action before I get slammed with them. I have read where some bloggers had hundreds of them. These spammers often use automated equipment to keep posting over and over again. I noticed a new feature of blogger that I could turn on which requires a person to type in the words they see in a box before they can comment. This is just to make sure there is a real person making the comment (the automated software cannot read the box). I did not turn this on because I do want to make it as easy as possible for people to comment and I thought this might turn people off. If I ever do have spammer problems, I will have to resort to that feature. It is so sad that we can't enjoy this little hobby without spammers ruining our fun, isn't it?
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.
