Oh, my - the Blogger dashboard says this is my 700th post.
I certainly didn't imagine that as I started gingerly making posts about my gardening activities and nature observations 2 and 1/2 years ago.
As a stymied nature and garden journal writer in paper format, I've obviously enjoyed this format much more. On paper, I was always thinking about wanting to change what I'd written (much easier to revise online), fussy about my drawings and sketches (not bad, but not like photographs), and I'd forget to make notes about gardening activities or nature sightings.
The blogging format was a revelation.
I can sit down in the evening, reflect on the most interesting thing(s) I did or saw that day in the garden or in nature, and record it. Sometimes I have photos, sometimes not, but it's always a grounding experience, connecting me with where I live, garden, and experience nature.
I started out simply writing for my own records and enjoyment, and I still do. But, I'm glad if what I reflect on is of interest to others -- that is, you, too.
Thanks for being part of my nature and garden community.
