The year has gone by so quickly that really, I think I'm just getting my stride. There are so many gardening topics in my back pocket, I'm sure the blog and the site features will be around for a good while yet.
There's a little story I want to share. Back when I was dreaming of ways to start this website, I enrolled in a delightful blogging workshop offered by Chris Fraser at Firefly Creative Writing. It was called The Blog Shop.
We gathered online with sessions unfolding over a weekend. There were would-be bloggers from Ontario, Nova Scotia, the US West Coast, even England connecting and exchanging ideas. Chris connected via video from her kitchen. Many seemingly magical things happened as we shared our trepidations about public writing and making time to create. We laughed and we left feeling encouraged. Thanks to Chris' infectiously positive outlook, I knew I could do this new thing.
So yes, here I am a year later, celebrating!
