Before ATP a rainy day would mean I'd have to clean the house; no gardening to do out in the wet.
With ATP I can handle my virtual gardening chores, ask/answer questions, update lists, add to the ATP database, look at beautiful photos and give Thumbs up and/or Acorn Acorn .

Since I live as a family of one plus two dogs, ATP steps in and gives me plenty of sisters and brothers to chat with.

@RickCorey is a good person to chat with; has a wealth of information about a ton of subjects.

From @mellielong in Florida I am learning to be more patient, watching the butterfly life cycle.

Last year at this time @Gleni cheered me on all the way from Australia so I could incubate lizard eggs!

Can't forget to mention @Sharon for all the kind, encouraging words. I would never have written an article for ATP if it weren't for Sharon and her Aunt Bett stories. Lovey dubby

My favorite part of ATP is the pet chat thread (starring @NewYorkRita Hurray! ) because lots of gardeners have pets that help us in the garden. Thumbs up Even if my time is short or I have errands to run, a quick stop in the Sandbox to check on the pets helps to start the day right. Thumbs up

Don't worry, I'm not gonna list each and every person; those were just some highlights.

Ooops, I forgot one! If I feel like being silly I know that @flaflwrgrl will go Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing no matter what I post. Whistling

Has ATP enhanced my enjoyment of gardening? Yes. It has also enhanced my life! I tip my hat to you.

Thanks, Greene! The caterpillars and butterflies (and a few moths) have taught me much patience, too. It never was one of my virtues. Glad you are enjoying them, too!

And Ann certainly loves the Rolling on the floor laughing emoji. But we wouldn't want her any other way!

I look forward to another year, and more great years after that here at ATP!

ATP has opened up a whole new life for me. Although I have gardened for most of my life, I have learned so much here and enjoy chatting with my virtual friends each day. The photos are fabulous and some days even if I don't join in on a thread, I always try to take a look at the photos posted. Dave and Trish have a wonderful thing going here and I am happy they are raising more little gardeners to carry on their dream.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.
