This is a day to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. I am particularly grateful at this time of year for family and friends, for decent octogenarian health, and for the addition of another generation added to my family tree: the birth of our first great grandchild.
May God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you.
John Viccellio retired after 24 years in the U. S. Navy and began to dig into gardening when he could finally land in one place. He completed the Master Gardener course in 1992 and has since designed and constructed two of his own gardens. He wrote a monthly garden column for ten years and was a regular contributor to Carolina Gardener magazine. John published his first book, Guess What's in My Garden!, in 2014.
He lives in a retirement community in Matthews, NC.
Please join me for A Walk in the Garden: a way of sharing gardening observations, spiced I hope with a dash of experience, a dollop of opinion, a slice of irreverence, a spoonful of love for plants, and a cup full of memories.

Thank you John. Aren’t we blessed to have lived long enough to see the birth of a great grandchild. We have one who is 5 and it’s so much fun to talk with her. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Tucker and all your family!
Thanks, Barb. Hope you and yours have a blessed day.
