While each of us are as unique and different from each other as where we live and what we grow, I am constantly astounded by the kindred spirits of gardeners--
We are a hopeful lot, generally living in our moments yet grandly resilient in our failures and always with that confident expectation that spring will come, the seeds will sprout, the rain will fall, the harvest will be epic, the flowers will be beautiful, the butterflies will return, etc., and the garden will never be 'done' but it will be better every year. If that's not eternal hope I don't know what is!!!

OMG--what a site! As Ann said Everything Just look around--something for everyone for sure! and if you don't find it, just ask for it and it will magically appear Hilarious! oh, wait--that's not magic--that's Dave nodding

And whether we connect with each and every other one of us or not and form the friendships that transcend the screens--one thing that always gets me is just how dang often I really do smile and laugh out loud (I rarely roll on the floor--too dirty) and how very much I really do identify with so many of our plant-loving idiosyncrasies--
--pot ghettos Hilarious! oh yeah, swooning over new plants, addiction enabling, outright addictions--really reaching true hoarder status if you think about it for a minute--okay, stop already--there's still room for a few more Whistling and if there's not just pile some more cardboard on the lawn and make some room! out of lawn already? build UP--sky's the limit and/or clear a spot and send 'em to your grateful friends on ATP Thumbs up

I truly adore the inherently individual style with which we all create and recreate our various masterpieces--
I celebrate the infinite Inspiration-Encouragement-Freedom I find here everyday, courtesy of all you wonderful members:
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Beautifully said Dirt!
