I look forward to spending the year with you!
It is a fresh, new year and I have hopes that this will be the best gardening year ever! As I am looking forward, I am also looking back and reflecting on what I learned while garden blogging this year…
Remember when I wrote that Dear John letter to my lemon tree for fraternizing with the tree down the road? I learned that apparently my tree reads! After I wrote the letter, it immediately changed its ways and is currently covered in fruit!
I learned that fellow gardeners really enjoy virtual tours of other people’s gardens. It is like bringing along a friend on a field trip!
The Huntington Botanical Garden with it’s letterbox was fun.
And a private garden in Los Angles …
that featured garage sale finds got the largest response from Twitter readers. We will be visiting that garden again in the spring.
This year, I was almost eaten by a nasturtium ….
and but still managed to learn Eight Life Lessons while gardening, so I suppose it was a good year overall.
But surprisingly, the post which received the most readers on my blog this year was….
Give That Bulb A Martini!
Have a wonderful start to 2009 everyone…I look forward to spending the year with you!
