Three Years a-Rambling

3rd.birthday3Three years ago I ventured into blogging for the very first time, albeit in a small and private way. Little did I know then how much it would become part of my life, how much I would learn and how many blogging friends I would make. Through the blog I have come to appreciate and understand my garden even more than before – but much as I enjoy the garden and the art of writing about it, never in a million years could I have anticipated the pleasure arising from sharing these things with other bloggers. Thank you to each and every one of you for your comments, support, encouragement, information, advice, plant and seed gifts and unsurpassed friendliness over this period – and for finding my blog worth reading, as people clearly do in ever-increasing numbers! Thank you everyone πŸ™‚

    Happy Bloganniversary! Its amazing how compulsive it can become isnt it and I think I am a better gardener now because as you say you find yourself looking more when you are taking regular photos and writing about your garden.

    Congratulations on your Blogiversary. Three years, what an achievement! I am delighted to have found your blog and made such a lovely blog friend. Blogging is indeed a wonderful way of honing your gardening, writing and photography skills. And it is amazing to be part of such a lovely, supportive community of like- minded people who you can share ideas with.

    Congratulations on your Blogiversary. Blogging certainly changed my life and I agree I do think it makes you so much more aware of our own gardens but also what is possible when you regularly see others. I began like you with the idea of corresponding with a couple of friends little realizing what a wonderful community of like minded people there were out there. Long may you continue to enjoy blogging and entertaining us with your wonderfully apt tittles!

    A day to celebrate! I have found plenty of inspiration and encouragement from your blog, Cathy, as others clearly have too. It makes such a difference while gardening here, where there is emphatically not a local gardening culture πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations on three years blogging, as some one relatively new to blogging it has opened up a whole new world of garden info and guidance. It has added to the pleasure received from my own garden but also having the chance to ‘Ramble around your Garden’.
    Thank you.

    Happy blog anniversary, Cathy! I can appreciate how you feel about blogging – it has given me much more than I anticipated too when I started my own blog (about 9 months after you). I look forward to your future posts and, of course, “In a Vase on Monday”!

  21. Happy blogging Anniversary Cathy! How wonderful for you and for all of us!

  22. Happy anniversary Cathy! Its amazing how writing about and photographing the garden seems to make you a better gardener isn’t it, I love it, and the camerarderie of the blogging community. I’m edging back in to it all after my hiatus, and I know I was meant to send you more than just anemanthele, do you remember what else? Ho him, at least the plants will be full of vigorous spring growth when they reach you…

    • Cathy says:

      Oh thanks Janet, and how good to hear from you. Hope your planned business is going well, or all set to go, or wherever you would like it to be at the moment! I am afraid I have no idea what else you promised me – seems a long time ago, sorry! πŸ˜‰ Glad you are experiencing vigorous spring growth anyway – a good time to be back in the garden again

  23. Congratulations, Cathy, on your 3rd anniversary! And a very fitting and clever set of pictures to celebrate it with. I’m so glad I “met” you – your blogs are always such a pleasure to read. And lang may ye ramble on! πŸ™‚
