I Found Blotanical!

Gardening is my passion. It is the number one reason why I started a blog. To share with others and to find like minded folks. I was completely unaware that this amazing world existed and that it was just sitting within my laptop a fingers click away. Well, needless to see, I am blissfully aware now.

As i hunted for all the greatest blogs I noticed many of them had something in common. A curious link to a site called http://blotanical.com. I of course clicked on the link and found yet another wonderful garden world. I immediately signed up and created my account. I got to work adding my favorite blogs and really had no trouble navigating the site. Even if I had there were plenty of easy to find help links to clarify any questions I might have had.

Already, I am making new friends and enjoying the rewards of being a member of Blotanical. I'm thinking that all of this is a new beginning to my favorite things in life. Friends and gardening. To share with others, mine and theirs, joys in life and garden.
"Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like having a friend takes time." Georgia O'Keefe

If anyone can truly see a flower it is the people who tell their stories and share their experiences in gardening.
