Because I can't bear to end the year with a bleak winter scene, I thought I'd go out with two favorite photos from summer:
I think the end of the year is a perfect time to say thank you to all of you who've taken the time to read my blog this past year, who've left me a comment, encouraged me, supported me, etc. It's been a wonderful experience beyond anything I imagined when I drafted that first post. You've inspired me to learn more, grow as a gardener and a person and thrilled me with all your marvelous photos and talents. I am truly amazed at what I've discovered in blogland. You've enriched my life although a lot of us have never met and I look forward to continuing that relationship in 2009.
From my house and heart to yours, may we all have a healthy, happy, more peaceful and secure 2009. See you next year!
