Those are indeed beautiful shots, Donna, and make me wish I had a green thumb! What place to dream, and write, and read...

Congratulations on getting another book out, Donna - and awed congratulations on your garden! I can't grow anything like your English country garden and I live in England! It all looks beautiful.

Dear jenny, Dolores and Joy,
Thank you so much for writing! My very first blogging experience is daunting, but such fun. I appreciate the support from DL!

In the middle of a grey and brown November, it's lovely to see your beautiful garden.
Good luck with the blog.

We are great friends with Donna and love to see her work so excellently listed here! I have been in that garden and it is lovely.

Dolores, I read The English Garden magazine, but I'm never sure whether it's more inspiring or disheartening.

Joy, fun to hear from you. Are you still writing?

Liz Rose, Ah, I just returned from being with my daughter & family in Calgary. Yes, gorgeous sun, but brown winter and COLD! It was a shock to return to greengold trees and roses in my garden. They are gone now, though.

Steve & Janet, Hi, fellow Idahoans! Loved the photo of your winter garden.

Sara, definitely time for another cup of tea!

Love to all,

Deb, thank you so much for updating my plog post. Goodness, it's been more than 2 years since we put up the original--how can that have happened?

Ah, spring My crocus and Lenten Roses (Hellebores) are lovely just now. ihave branches of forced forsythia (forced-sythia?) in my dining room.

What do you have blooming?

We are just now beginning to see patches of green in the grass. But it almost hit 75 today so we'll start to see some blooms soon. The sedum stayed deep red and yellow and green thanks to our extremely mild winter, so we do have some color on the rock garden hill.
