It's fun to read your blog, Pippi, I guess because I can identify with most of your activities in one way or another. With gardening, there's always something.

You keep writing and I'll keep reading!

Don't laugh but I post same over at DG blog as a record to myself. I hope I'm not abusing the blog purpose..it's not really what is considered a blog but I noticed others are using it as I do. Hope that is okay. I've never seen any rules post for ATP website. Some of the same people post on DG, GW and Cubits and ATP..familiar usernames.. So many people have held my hand the first two years that i tried wintersowing and were so kind and patient. I dont' know if I will do any wintersowing in 2013 or not. My flowerbeds are getting pretty full of perennials..the cottage style plants. If I do any WS, it will be mostly annuals..and by the time I run for potting mix that I like I can buy the starter plants and not have to listen to the hassle I get from my husband! "A woman has a right to change her mind though!"

What is it that you said you could relate to that I have said in my blog here on ATP? I'm glad you enjoy it and I'm always open to comments or suggestions. That's the way we learn by learning to listen to more experienced gardeners than one's own self.

Your words are the same words I say to myself so often; plus the fact is you have a lot of the same plants that I have.

Your blog is yours, you can post to it in any way you like. I just like your words, they give me a description of your garden beds even without pictures. And I remember from the mail you sent to me on DG, the one about my Daylily Parade article, I remember that you said you got new daylilies and couldn't wait for them to bloom. I love daylilies as you know if you remember that article.

You are enthusiastic about your garden and you see some things that would look better if you moved them for next season. I do that myself, and make notes and take pictures so I remember. So for those reasons I like your blog. It's always fun and interesting to read.

Here is the link to the 'Terms of Service' here on ATP: http://garden.org/about/tos/

It's pretty much all legal terminology, things you already know, but as for specific rules there really are none except to treat everybody like you'd want to be treated. We pretty much do that here and there is a deep element of respect here as well. Most people are happy to be here and it shows.

So keep on contributing to your blog. You never know when what you write will be just what somebody else needs! Smiling

I noticed that another gardener makes a notation exactly where she plants specific new plants so she will be able to identify them later. Might be a helpful feature because every year i have had mystery plants that I don't know what they are and volunteers pop up gifted by birds I guess or sometime it is in soil of a potted plant I've received. Primroses showed up this year and I never grew them. That beautiful Silene armeria; I'm don't know where it came from but when it was blooming, it sure was a beautiful sight. I'm glad you are enjoying reading what I have written. I've been told that I write the way I speak..hope my Southern manners and ways come forth in my writtings.

A lot of us write the way we speak. It feels like having a conversation with you when I read your blog. Southern manners noted!!

Maryland isn't south, whatever are you talking about??
