WordPress has just reminded me that it is three years since I registered my blog. I didn’t put up my first post till June, as I spent several weeks dithering about it. But, today’s the anniversary so it’s worth celebrating today. My first post – see here -didn’t have any pictures – but I’m still quite fond of it as it summed up what I thought my blog would be about. Seven years ago, soon after we moved into this house, the front garden was devoted entirely to paving and had room for three cars: we made a plan of what we hoped the front garden might look like. My, now, almost completely grown up, son added an important sign:
Seven years on from that plan, and three years on from my first blog post, my front garden is still blooming and buzzing:
It has flowers and herbs, a small but promising cherry tree:
and it has vegetables:
and wild flowers
All of this and much more replaces what was once a car park. Paradise continues to be reclaimed. This all happened before I started blogging but now I get to share it with my readers as well as the random toddlers who come in to smell the flowers, so happy birthday again blog.
