Seven 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…

Congrats! Have you ever considered attending a Garden Blogger’s Fling? It would be great to meet you in real life someday…
Thank you, Loree. I have thought about attending the Fling one day, (when we get past all this nuttiness). And yes, it would be lovely to meet in person someday.
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
Thanks, Frank. I well remember those early days when every like and follow was a thrill. 🙂 It took a looong time to get to 100!
A long time to get to 100? I think I just passed 100 just a few months ago lol
Because 7 is a prime number, you can tell people that your blog is in its prime.
I like that– thanks, Steve!
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!
Thank you kindly for sharing that, Belinda! Much appreciated. 🙂
Congratulations and I’ve so enjoyed all the peaceful and beautiful visits to your wonderful blog (and, of course, it’s an absolute favorite)!! Loved the look back and the perfect quote!!
Thank you kindly, Susan. It’s been a fun ride so far. 🙂
Eliza–We both got started the same year! I’m thrilled that we met early on 🙂 I always enjoy viewing your little paradise–Jill
Many thanks, Jill. It’s been fun!
Happy blogiversary Eliza. It takes a lot of dedication to keep a blog going 7 years! Sometimes I look back to visit blogs I haven’t seen in a while and find them abandoned. Love your blog and hope you keep it going for a long time to come.
Thank you kindly, Denise. God willing! 😉
happy anniversary, from a new friend. . .that is glad we met.
Same here, thanks much, Michele!
Thank you, Stormie!
