It's been a little like Jack's beanstalk, you know, the rapid growth of All Things Plants. It's only been a year, but just look at what the year has brought to gardeners all around the world. Let's begin this article now with a word from the top.

It does not seem a year and yet so much has been achieved by Dave, Trish, Sharon the moderators and everyone else! The Database is growing all the time and that can only be for the best. The photographs you see on ATP from everyone are amazing, and just stun me. Trish your Tips idea is fantastic and is looked forward to. For those like me who go to shows and events it is great that I can do a lot of photography, write an Article and Sharon's gift makes all of everyone's Articles sparkle. Dave is a genius and a star , all we need now is for Dave to get busy and find a way to waft all the gorgeous scents we get off the wonderful plants we are near, across the internet to us when you go near a picture of them!
But it is about the kind and caring people on ATP, nothing seems too much trouble to them whatever you ask, and that is what makes ATP so special to me so many thousands of miles away!
I am going to the worlds biggest flower show tomorrow and yes it is raining, but it has been since March so does it matter, no of course it doesn't!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY ATP!
Regards to all from a wet England.
Neil.

Dear Sharon, I do hope you have a great day! I doubt on the 4th of July I could even tempt you with freshly made scones and homemade strawberry jam with cream?
Have a great time my friend.
Group hug

Mmmm.... I love scones.

Neil, the 4th of July is a pretty relaxed holiday for us- a day for bare feet and a cold beer and hot dogs and burgers on the grill.
