Thank you

Good morning Friends ~ I want to say once again a heartfelt thank you to all who visit my blogs, for comments left, and also for the inspiration and encouragement you all share so freely.

For my Blotanical friends I want to apologize for not visiting regularly each and every one of your blogs. There just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that needs doing, plus the fun, enjoyable stuff.

I just had 19 people pick my post about the St. Vincent lilac vine, but only 5 of them show up in the list, so I have no idea who they all are, but I appreciate the picks.

Blogging has opened a whole new world for me. There are lots of friendly people who are willing to share parts of their lives in whatever they are interested in, gardening, cooking, crafts, home and child care, life in general.

Today looks to be a gorgeous day the way it is starting out with sunshine and warm temps. We are supposed to have heavy rains a little later, I just hope it happens while I'm not going to and from work.

I wish you all a great week wherever you are. I know a lot of you are getting excited about spring and I love seeing all of your gardens coming to life.

Zone 10 ~ s.e. FL

What a beautiful thank you. Like you, it is hard to find the time to comment on everyone's blog each time and thank for all the picks. I hope you keep dry this week to and from work :^) I am so happy to have met you through blogging...

It is my pleasure to follow your along life's path. I really enjoy hearing and seeing your world in Florida.

I am so looking forward to more posts full of pictures of your beautiful gardens! I can always count on you to take me to a place of beauty where I can almost smell the roses' aromas via your photos.

Wishing you a great week ahead as well as good gardening weather.

I echo Moonstone, we read your blog because it is real and heartfelt. You are real and I feel you in my heart. ((hugs))

I wanted to let you know that I have left a couple of comments recently but they have been bounced back to my email as undelivered. I don't know what that's all about. Not to worry, there was nothing of Earth shattering importance in them; just notes to tell you how wonderful I think you are and how precious you are to me.
Have a wonderful lovely, Florida day my friend!

I love to read your blog. I think sometime we all have a difficult time getting around to reading all of the blogs we'd like to. I love blogging too - I have learned so much and made so many friends including you. Thank you my dear friend.

Good evening everyone ~ Thank you all for your lovely comments, they really touched my heart.

Noelle ~ It rained on the way home but not real hard. It is always a relief to get home no matter what the weather.

Cindee ~ It is hard to believe that others want to read my posts.

L.D. ~ I enjoy visiting your part of the world too, with your remodeling and photographs, etc.

YaYa ~ I wish there was a way to post the scents along with the pictures. That would be wonderful, aromatherapy for our hearts and souls.

LeSan ~ Hugs back to you too. We've had server problems but now have a new one, and things are working again. I'll email you later, I do enjoy our chats.

Becca ~ You are right about making friends in blog world. More than we could ever make in real life. It is a pleasure to get to know you and others.

Kit ~ We go back many, many years, having met in a forum about country living. It has been a joy knowing you and it is nice getting to know your daughter as well.

Thank you all again from my heart.

Definitely getting excited about spring -- we're getting the downside of the snow now. I agree that blogs are a wonderful way to get to know people from around the country and around the world. I love to come here and read your posts about your garden and cottage, and see the beautiful roses and other flowers in the middle of winter.

Hi FlowerLady,
That was a lovely thank you, and I concur with all of your other commenters. You write from the heart, and your heart is a beautiful one, just like your home and garden.

I know what you mean about not being able to keep up with blogging. I haven't even tried to get on blotanical for a few weeks. We almost have all of our appliances picked out, and will be giving our down payment Thursday, when the contractor comes to measure the windows.

Thanks for your comments and encouragement on our kitchen. We plan to stay with our son, daughter-in-law and grandson for the 4 days they are planning to take.

Hugs back to you!

I LOVED the quote on your blog about peace. I think I might copy it and put in up in my office at work.
