7th Blogiversary

moon and cloudsSeven years ago today, I nervously published my first post on WP. It was a whole new world to me and I hadn’t a clue what I was doing, but obviously, I conquered the learning curve and have been posting regularly ever since.

I am grateful to all who visit, like and follow, especially since the early days. Just as each of us grow and change, so has this blog. Originally, I wrote a lot of garden articles and posts about nature in my area. A couple years later, I began to shift to more photos than writing, and while I often think I should post more written work, it doesn’t seem to happen. Things evolve and I reckon we tend to ‘go with the flow.’

I thought I would take a look back and choose 7 posts that I liked with links below. Visit one, or all, if you are so inclined. One of the things I find interesting, is how the garden has changed over the years (see 2017). Nature is like a river, it flows continuously…

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”   ~ Heraclitus.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me! ❤

    Congratulations! I’ve enjoyed being along for the ride, thanks for taking us 🙂
    Nice to hear there was someone else out there all nervous about their first post. I was exactly the same and so concerned when someone actually viewed it lol

  6. Because 7 is a prime number, you can tell people that your blog is in its prime.

  7. I used to enjoy your posts before I even joined WP ( my spouse introduced me to your Blog). Your beautiful garden, and photos and the knowledge you have shared sure sparked my interest in all things botanical!
    Congratulations, Eliza!
