For 2015, Let's Celebrate Gardening at All Things Plants

We've said it so often that it has become our informal slogan: ATP is all about having fun. What better way to have fun than to dedicate an entire year to celebrating gardening and every aspect of it.

I'm really in the mood for fun this year. Instead of being preoccupied with weeds, pests, diseases, etc., I just want to celebrate the joys of gardening.

Perfectly said. I'm very excited! I think it's going to start great and get even better as we refine the idea. By the time we get really far into the year we're going to have some action packed weeks. It's gonna be great.

I love this idea Thumbs up I tip my hat to you. I love this site too nodding
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Yes, this Celebration of ATP and fun in gardening is a great idea!
People will need to see it evolve, so they see how it makes fun for everybody.
I put some of my ideas on it-- over on the "Rockies will be behind" comments.

What a lovely idea, Trish and Dave!

The timing is absolutely perfect for me - living in the Southern Hemisphere, I nurture from the colourful flowers and information provided at a season I spend mainly indoors and have a lot of computer-time.

Thanks!
