A Tribute to You.


Loving plants has been one of the single most life changing things in my life. It had brought me friends of all ages. It has taken me to so many beautiful places. It has taught my heart to be restful and at peace. It has brought me awareness of the changing seasons. It has brought me here, to garden blogging.

I have been so happy since I began this blog. I have meet so many new plant lovers and have been invited into all of your gardens and lives through your wonderful blogs. Your gardens have inspired me and your passions have ignited my will to be better. I am bombarded with ideas 24/7 now. Garden ideas, career ideas, friend ideas, so many new things to do, places to go, people to meet.

Knowledge is power right? I can't imagine a more powerful group of people than those that love the earth and the life that grows on it. You are all the reason that the earth is still a wonderful place. Your love and imagination for what can be is unequaled.

I thank all of you for your stories, photos and adventures. For sharing your lives with all who care. I look forward to being a part of all of this for many years to come.

Sincerely,
Michelle

I absolutely agree with you! This winter seemed cold and dark until I found this site and all of the wonderful garden blogs and bloggers. I have been inspired non-stop and can't wait to see what comes in the coming months.

You are so sweet and i feel exactly the same way. I get so much inspiration from you and others who share their creative projects and ideas. I definitely know what you mean about coming up with new ideas 24/7! There are so many things I want to do. I think i'm actually going to keep a journal with pictures of things that inspire me and ideas for future projects. See?! You got me thinking right there and now that's what I'm going to do, haha. Thanks sweetie! =)

Blogging is wonderful, isn't it? Winters are no longer so cold and dreary, but are now a time to soak up knowledge and see beautiful pictures of gardens all over the world. Chatting back and forth with like-minded souls is a joy indeed :)
You've written a beautiful tribute. Thank you!
