I am really very impressed by my fellow bloggers. It takes a lot of time and effort to make the posts interesting and hopefully pretty; some of them so well done and professional looking. I, on the other hand, can only do the basics. Oh yes, I would love to have little falling stars across the written word and borders to die for. I just don't want to take the time to learn plus I fear what I have done will go poof. Also, this time of year, I am too busy gardening. Sooooo, have a look at the flower/seed pod of a leek. I planted a stand of them last year and they didn't get as large as the ones in the store, so I just left them in the ground. Voila! This year they have huge purple heads on long stems - like something out of a Dr. Seuss garden.

And, these daisies have been coming back like old friends year after year for the past 27 summers. So what pray tell, do these specimens have to do with bloggers and blogging? Well, I get to share them with you...


  1. That gorgeous ball of bloom is a leek? Amazing!! Happy Gardening. I'm impressed.

  2. Interesting about your leeks-I have been watching a dozen or so come up in my fairy roses-just beginning to bloom. I didn't plant them-where did they come from? Need to investigate that? pgt


Someone said comments are the heartbeat of blogs. I love to read your comments and learn so much from every one of you. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me.
