200th Post Giveaway

I love blogging. I just passed a milestone in blogging. This is my 202nd post. I still find it hard to believe that you all actually read my post - something that I write. I am humbled. I read and appreciate each and every comment.

Why I blog.
When I moved into my rental house 3 years ago there was not a single flower on the property - nearly 4 acres. I have always enjoyed growing flowers but never really got to where I wanted.
Since starting my blog I have created 4 garden areas. I have been blessed by my fellow bloggers with seeds this spring. My gardens have flourished. I enjoy gardening like I never have before. It is theraputic. When you are in the gardens it seems there is nothing but pretties and the expectation of more beauties opening up to kiss the sun.
I started this blog as a means to share what I'm doing. It helps me to be accountable. I blog because I like participating in what others are doing. I blog because it's fun. I blog because it also takes your mind off of yourself and into what others are doing, sharing and their lives. Because we are friends we sometime share what's going on in our lives and reach out. There are prayer warriors all over blogland. And when we share we can be sure that someone is praying for us.

I want to gift this to someone. It is Delightful Daisy Wax Burner. All you have to do is leave a comment. You must be a blogger - no anonymous will be considered. The winner will be announced on Monday.



Hope you all have a blessed day.

Becca, you are a very special person and seeing that you once lived in Chicago, even more of a connection! The candle burner is lovely.

Good Morning Sweet Becca...
Congratulations sweet friend. Yes what a milestone you have passed.
I too, so enjoy blogging with you and coming to visit. You always have so many beautiful things to share, and your writing is so beautiful. It is always like coming home for a visit. Thank you so much for that.

Any seeds that you might have to share I would so love to plant. I have not been in my gardens this year. I got sick in April and have not been allowed outside as of yet. Monday the 19th is my set free day and I would love to plant some seeds in that honor. See what they give me in return of my love.

Have a gorgeous day sweet friend. Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Hi Becca, no point in me winning the candle burner as I am too far away. Never the less I love your blog and seeing what happens in your garden. As you say it is amazing how you end up with so many friends around the world. Have a great day. Diane

Becca, you and I blog for almost the same reasons, I add that at my age, it is difficult to remember what I have planted and where, so my blog is also a journal of reminders.
I also am one of your readers who enjoys following your gardening adventures.

Wow, 200 posts. You go girl. If you or anyone you know has seeds for Queen Ann's lace I would love to have some. You can contact me via my profile on my blog.

Do you also save your blogs? I started a journal when we retired and since blogging has taken the place of it I am considering saving them also as a journal.

my first visit. Popped over from Far Side.

Strange reasons we all start blogging. I did four years ago to chronicle a story.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

Congrats on all of your posts. I've really enjoyed getting to know you through blogging. It's fun getting to know people from other places, it makes the world seem a little smaller.
The wax burner is very pretty.
