Who is that lurker there?

I have a confession to make.  I'm a lurker.  There, I've said it.  I feel so much better!  For two years now I've been a lurker in the blogosphere.  Like this little toad here hiding in my Japanese Yew container, I've been hiding...reading multiple blogs daily and feeling extremely disappointed when the authors can't post because of work, vacation, illness or whatever other demands require them to stay away from their posting.  It's seems silly but I feel as if I know you and your gardens.  I know your gardening successes and your disappointments, your passions and in some cases, your families.   I've gained countless bits of knowledge from you and have stepped out of my comfort zone quite a few times with your encouragement.  So I can't take being a lurker any longer -  I simply have to participate.  You've made this look like so much fun that I have to take the plunge!


  1. Well, I for one am glad you have decided to join the blogosphere!

    Love ya!

  2. Thanks for visiting Bob. I stopped by your blog today and oddly enough I just had a nightmare last night about a coral snake biting my mother! Weird I know, but even more weird that your most recent post had a picture of the longest coral snake I've ever seen!! Not sure what Freud would say...

  3. Well HI!
    I just found your blog from my blog. What a great space and AMAZING pictures!! SO glad you started sharing your garden with us!

  4. Thanks! I found your blog and instantly loved it! So much fun and I love your "voice".

"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
