How Time Flies....Anniversary # 3...

It's hard to believe.  
But, this blog was started Three Years Ago!

This was that first blog picture.

A few things have changed here.  Fences and new beds.

The front certainly looks different than three years ago.
We redid the Island bed.

And, built a driveway bed.  And, we have a new bed along the back of the house.

We have new places to sit and enjoy the view.

Gardening has been challenging.  We had a cold, cold DRY winter.

Followed by a hot, hot VERY DRY summer.

Then...thankfully...a wetter and milder winter.

The creeks and rivers are flowing again.
But, we're still not out of the woods.
We've had little rain for a couple weeks now.

The wildflowers and the butterflies are here again...gracing this beautiful place,
our little bit of heaven.

Here in the lovely spring, I still can find things to talk about and show you.
Sometimes, that surprises me.
Although, to those of you out there who know's no surprise that I haven't run out of things to say.

So, thank you to all the bloggers out there, who visit and comment here.
It's an honor to have you drop by.

And, thank you for helping me make it to my third anniversary.
Here's hoping to get to number four.

Happy Gardening...


  1. Linda, I have really enjoyed following along and look forward to many more future posts. I always like to see what is happening in your neck of the woods. Your garden pictures have inspired me. Happy Anniversary!
