I'm glad you're here, and I'm glad there aren't giveaways and pop up ads. You are a peaceful and thoughtful spot on the internet that I thoroughly enjoy visiting. Thanks for being here!

Happy Blogaversary! I have been reading your blog for quite a few years. I so enjoy all of your topics of interest. Even what I am not so interested in I read because you write so well and can express your opinions convincingly.

Thanks for those kind words. Coming from a newspaper background, I am too used to editorial and advertising being rigorously separated to make that leap even on the blog. I remember once a local college sent everyone in the newsroom a mug filled with pencils with the school logo on everything for their anniversary. They all got sent back! Not that such a tiny thing could have influenced anyone, but it was the principle of the thing. Not sure how much that may or may not have changed in the years since I've been gone.

Before Mark and I went to the Chicago Fling in 2009 we started reading the blogs of everyone who was going to be there as a way to get to know them in advance. I am pretty sure that's how I discovered you. I think you and Pam Penick are pretty much the only bloggers from then that I still follow on a regular basis. And thanks for that nice compliment on my writing efforts.


Happy blogiversary! Here's to many more years of your well-written, interest laden posts! I always enjoy hearing and seeing what's on your mind!

Ten years is just around the corner! I'm so glad to see new posts from you and I am thankful we've "found" each other!

Linda Brazill

Me, too! And the fact that you and Peter usually post 5x a week encourages me to do the same.

I've always appreciated the time and effort it takes to blog. Even just being a reader can be a challenge at times. Your blog has been pretty effortless to read. I think I found you when you were doing the series about creating your garden. I drifted away for a while for some reason but was so happy to come back. You never disappoint. Congratulations on your anniversary.

Linda Brazill

I picture you longtime readers and commenters when I write. Thanks for sticking with me.

Susan Adler Sobol

Wow - did that fly by! It has been such a pleasure to follow you. Continue to write about whatever you choose. It has been wonderful to watch the garden evolve and to view your art work as well as Marc's. You have let us into your home, your garden and into your world. Thank you, Linda! fondly, Susan
