ATP is a magical place for me.
First place in the morning and last place before bed...the friends I've made here have changed my life in so many ways. It's not just about "All things Plants" it's so much more. A special place I can slip away to for gardening ideas, questions, seeds, plants, photography, butterflies and birds, you name it it's here to be found. Above all that though, is the special feeling of togetherness I find no matter where we are each day. From Main to California there is always a friend to here. A hometown magical place I'll stay as long as I'm able Lovey dubby

Thank You! Lovey dubby Thank You! for all of you helping to make my small part of the world "magical" Thank You! Lovey dubby Thank You!
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...

I agree and remember, Ronnie, you too are part of the magic.
Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

nodding What she said!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

This is a magical place like the Secret Garden children's book. Just like Ronnie @luvsgreatdanes I am here first thing in morning and last thing before I go to bed, a great way to wake slowly or unwind from my very busy day. I've had my share of crisis these last three years -- my husband's job losses, menopause, daughter's anxiety problems and the stress of becoming the family's main breadwinner and putting second daughter through college --- yet ATP (and my garden) help me find calm. When people talk about how well I'm coping I know it's because I have my magical secret garden filled with friends.
