A Mark in Time

In our culture we revere as special a day that marks an anniversary–a birth, a marriage, a graduation, a start-up–whatever is a new beginning.

Daylily Siloam Double Classic…one of my favorites

Today is one of those special days for me…the FIFTH anniversary of A Walk in the Garden. I started this blog five years ago hoping to spread the word about my ebook, Guess What’s in My Garden. Book sales have not been overwhelming, but I have been delighted with the number of “blogosphere” friends made over these five years from around the world.

I am grateful for your comments and continued support and encouragement. Yes, I have retired from active gardening, but I will continue to share my love of the garden in different ways in this blog.

Thank you for a fun five years, 585 posts and counting.
