|First, thanks for the opportunity to help celebrate this remarkable community! It is for me a place where I can always learn something new and beneficial. This is made possible because of the wide knowledge base of the many members with differing backgrounds. Whether it be "The Bean" by @Sharon, "Willow Tea for "No Cost" Rooting of Cuttings" by @Horseshoe, or "Rose Care in My Long Island Garden" by @Newyorkrita, there is so much to be learned from their ideas and articles! And I could go on and on to the point where I know that I can never repay anyone for their insight.|
And then there are the blogs where I go on cold winter evenings for entertainment and ideas. There are so many that I sometimes have to 'star' an article, picture or idea for future reference. There are usually about 45 to 50 starred items of ideas, pictures and various posts that I don't want to lose track of. Occasionally I'll update the list and add more. These blogs are a personal treasure with inviting pictures and projects from various regions of the country including gardening and landscape design. I especially enjoy the pictures: And I do not want to shortchange anyone by not mentioning their names. If I did that I would take up the balance of the day listing them here!!
I must mention the gorgeous pictures in the data base, the Multi-Plant photos and random views. But, what I really want to say is there are real people who contribute in a sincere and caring way to make all of these parts of ATP what it is today! The data base alone is a wealth of information contributed by so many!
To avoid boredom in my small part of celebration, I will cut this short. But, NOT before saying THANKS to everyone who has made this experience possible. This includes Dave, Trish, Family (especially Raffle Boy & Rosebud), and the Moderators who have contributed so much. Now, I want to finish by saying THANKS to each and every member: You have all touched me in some very positive ways!
