Three Years Old
Well, here we are at this blogs third birthday. It has given me pause for reflection and I am happy to keep on with the occasional writing here. I do aim to write once a month but I seem to miss a few months because I am off exploring the world. Trips will usually mean some travel photos of gardens coming up. I have gone back to some of the old posts to add on more information or pictures so you might want to look at old posts if you are wanting new info on Breadfruit or to see a photo of Crown Flower seed pods in Israel. It is always interesting to see the stats for the blog and watch new people from new countries coming in for a visit. Posts on the Crown Flower and on the Tiare are leading in page view numbers now. Thank you to my followers for joining me on this adventure and I hope my writing is helpful to those who stop by searching for help on a specific plant. Thank you and aloha to all the gardeners who, just like me, enjoy peeking into other gardens around the world via the internet.
As a birthday gift I am going to put up a photo of my favorite sighting of Sunflowers. This is a photo taken at the town park in Hawera, New Zealand a few months ago. They had a long line of Sunflowers that were surrounded by masses of the white flowered Salvia. It was such a wonderful combination that showed them both off at their best. There is another plant tucked in under the Sunflower that is a host for the Monarch butterfly which added to the display.
