Copied most of last year's thread intro, a'cause that's the way I'm rolling at the moment. Whistling

If you are tuning in for the first time: we(!) Smiling try to post flower/plant/garden images often, so if you don't care for conversation that changes direction more often than a Jai Alai game, just skim past it. Big Grin Big Grin

Here we are, starting a thread for year SIX. I say "we" because these threads are not solo endeavors, they are continuously evolving stories shared by an ever-expanding group of people who have also developed into friends (or friendly neighbors--that works, too).

Gardening is so much more than simply plants and, in this place, there is no such thing as off topic--glad to have every one of us here. So, y'all are welcome to join in, jump in, browse, lurk, comment--whatever makes you comfortable. Grab a cup, take a seat, and stake yourself a place in the party. Smiling

Link to the 2019 thread if you want to refer back to it.

Typing is uncomfortable right now, so won't be posting much until that hiccup is fixed later this month. Howsomever, as is becoming our tradition, the threads are started on the first day of the new year and...I can be consistent...sometimes... Thinking ...well, when it's important, anyway. Angel


I do have a goodie to start us off--look what is in bloom at my house right this very minute!!! Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

Will try to post a little more frequently than has been the case in the last few months. And it is worth repeating: I am so glad we are all here. Thank you.

Thank you, Ken, and right back atcha! Hope we both have a great day tomorrow. I'm making Five-Chocolate Cake with scratch fudge icing (cake mix is triple, plus I'll be adding dark chocolate chunks and white chocolate chips). First time in years I've had or made birthday cake, looking forward to savoring it awhile. Drooling Big Grin Drooling
