Today is the ninth anniversary of Rambling in the Garden – how on earth did that happen?! To mark the occasion, I have popped some blooms and foliage into the personalised vase that was handpainted for me by Elder Daughter some years ago: Corydalis ‘Beth Evans’, Hellebore ‘Winter Moonbeam’ and Pittosporum ‘Tom Thumb’.
Last year, on the eighth anniversary, I talked at length about all the things I had gained from blogging, many of them unexpected, but I will reiterate the final paragraph:
This leads on to the greatest benefit of my blog: the camaraderie of all those who read and comment on it regularly and especially my blogging friends, who have all contributed to the benefits already mentioned in one way or another. Sharing or exchanging information or advice, offering support in many guises, generously sharing and exchanging plants and seeds – the list is long. Not just publicly through our blogs, but by email and exciting little packages in the post, and sometimes in person too. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.
This holds true just as much as it did then – so thank you for sticking with me or, if you have begun rambling with me only recently, choosing to come alongside. Here’s to another year!
