I'm over here now. Here is my author website on Wordpress. With a tiny bit (a lot) of help, we moved all those 2,891 posts from Blogger over here to Wordpress. I posted on Blogger one last time yesterday with a post that was sort of designed to get you to click and head over here. Why?

"I don't know what to blog about" is a familiar lament amongst garden bloggers. I hope that does not apply to the 15th of every month when I host Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day here on my blog. Not familiar with it? Surely you jest! I've been hosting this meme since about 2007. I think that's when it started.

Then one day, a mysterious stranger came into her garden and offered her some new seeds to sow in her garden. The stranger … [Read more...] about A Garden Blogger’s Tale
Sometimes you just do stuff because you find this cool website where you can upload photos and make interesting pictures like this one of me on an imaginary book cover.
