Marking Time With A Garden

Snapdragons in Meditation Circle -April 22, 2017

Seven years ago, on January 7, 2011, I wrote my first pbmGarden article. Since that time I have been honored by your presence at my humble garden gate.

Lilium ‘Black Out’ (Asiatic lily)  – May 25, 2017

Initiated as a record-keeping discipline while I was working through some garden improvements, this blog has ended up being a source of deep personal satisfaction. You, dear readers, are the reason. As the garden grew, friendship sprouted. You have cheered me on with your own garden wisdoms and encouraged my efforts large and small.

We share a love of nature, we savor gardening moments, we find energy, solace and joy among the trees, birds and flowers. Through our gardens we are nourished.

It is a pleasure to have you visit. May our paths cross again soon.

Looking Back At 2017

Floral designs created for In A Vase On Monday were the majority of my posts this year, but there were some noteworthy moments in the garden itself. With emphasis on spring, my favorite time in the garden, here are a few favorites from 2017.

    Happy blog anniversary, Susie! Beautiful photos, all perfect, and a lovely message as well. I’ve thought of you every time I’ve heard a report on the dreadful eastern snow-pocalypse so I was pleased to find you pop up here. I’m glad IAVOM and the Fling allowed us to meet both figuratively on-line and literally in person. I hope your weather warms soon and you can get outside again before you go stir-crazy.

      Thanks so much Kris. I’m happy we met too. Blogging has been a great way to make new friends and it’s especially fun to meet in person. NC is setting cold weather records but promising weather is forecast. By Thursday we should be back in the 60s.

      Thank you Liz. It’s been so nice to get to know you through our blogs. I’ve been whining lately about the garden but when I look back it does bring joy.

    Happy Blogoversary, Susie, lovely retrospective and photos. I am also guilty of mostly IAVOM posts and have resolved to blog more. Looking forward to reading yours. Stay warm.

        That’s funny – I think gardeners share an uncontrollable urge to see the result of whatever weird thing they stick in the ground. Better if it can be put in a vase, in our case.(s)!
