Sixth Blogging Anniversary

I was pleased to receive a note from WordPress today marking the sixth anniversary of A Walk in the Garden. It’s hard to realize that 602 posts have made it out of my word processor, but here I am looking forward to another year of reaching out to readers around the world.

I am deeply grateful for your continued interest, your comments, and your encouragement.

Having moved to a retirement community some 18 months ago, I am without a garden. But I have my journals, my photo albums (before digital), and my archives on the computer. I just wish I had purchased a digital camera when they first came out. Alas, another regret that I cannot row back upstream.

Armed with the albums and my archives, I will continue the blog, emphasizing lessons learned (both good and bad), dreams of gardens yet unbuilt, and favorite memories of garden visits, friends, and plants. I’m sure I will continue to report on “Things I See Around Town.” I’ll close with one of my favorite photos: a pink tree peony.

    Congratulations John! I am sure it must be hard for you no longer having a garden to potter around in, but blogging can keep you connected to other gardeners and I do hope you will continue to share your thoughts and photos with us!

    I think we could all use some garden color, even if it’s memories, about now.


Replies welcome...really!
