I've been absent from the blogging world; busy gardening and living life to the fullest.
Baptisia 'Lemon Merengue'
Therefore, posts will be sporadic throughout summer and winding down by year end. Yes, I've decided this is it for me. The blog was an enhancement to my writing days of a newspaper column and magazine articles but I retired from all that, including teaching gardening seminars at the end of 2016.
I've become a lazy blogger, reading, often not commenting and find the communication through FB and IG are quicker to fulfil my needs these days. (and both have a like button💙)
My woodland garden, woodland phlox, 'Lemon Lace' elderberry and a vibrant purple Siberian iris.I've set in motion the cancellation of my extra Google storage and by December will terminate my .com address. My blog designer said I can still post periodically if I do these things: "All your links in the navigation bar should be changed to reflect the blogspot address or they won't work anymore. The .com domain should be removed from the blog as well. Once that is done everything will function as as always, but with the old blogspot address, and if you should ever want to do a periodic post your followers will still be able to find you."
I've figured out how to remove the .com domain from the blog but does anyone know how to change the links in the navigation bar for when I need to do this? Never say never - just in case.
We attended a wonderful outdoor wedding last weekend at a country inn with background music supplied by the above harpist. Her music was on an iPad with a special pedal to turn the page - such is technology!
Dinner was inside this huge tent with lots of twinkling lights strung above and heaters to take out the night air chill. The weather was perfect, food and company as well.
I made a lemon merengue pie from scratch this week, labour intensive but so delicious. The recipe came from a Canadian born woman now living in England who posts her recipes on The English Kitchen FB page.
Many of the bloggers I follow I'm already friends with on FB or IG and although there is a corresponding FB page to this blog, it will likely go at year end as well. I'm now hosting a community gardening FB group and am one of the admins for our garden club page. I can't believe how much information and sharing is done in the community FB groups, including my church.
I'll be back soon with a book review on gardening for butterflies and until then...
