And so Welcome to the Garden Spot began. I found more gardening blogs through http://www.blotanical.com/
There have times when I have become quite frustrated, but as one not to give up, I keep learning, keep writing, keep taking photos. My blog following has grown slowly. I cherish each one who decides that the Garden Spot has something of interest or finds it entertaining, worthwhile enough to time to take a moment to read my narrative and to view my photos.
So when Elaine of A Woman of the Soil and Rosebank Ramblings left a comment saying that she had awarded me the One Lovely Blog award, I was surprised, shocked, amazed, and most honored that she found my little blog so worthy of being called "lovely."
As a part of accepting the award, I have to list seven things about me:
- I am My Cup is Half Full sort of person
- I am so old that I can, probably should, but don't want to retire. I love my job and I love my students.
- I have been hopelessly addicted to soap operas since I was in college, so I am a wee bit upset that my favorites have been canceled.
- I have been married to the same man for 38 years. I don't know which of us should receive sainthood first--probably him.
- I am a geek for England, Ireland, and Scotland, desperately wanting to return to all three countries.
- I tend to spoil my grandchildren.
- I encourage my friends, especially my young friends, to live life the fullest every single day.
And now I have chosen ten blogs deserving of the One Lovely Bog Award for each has brought me much pleasure. I know that some blogs don't accept awards, and if yours is one, that's okay. I understand.
Thank you Elaine. I am honored to receive the award and I hope that I live up the the honor by taking my blog to new places.

It has begun to rain. One of those gentle, easy rains that will last a while. I hear it splattering on the patio, dripping on the closed table umbrella. The wind in the trees sets a gentle breeze that is cooling the house. I will go to sleep to the sound of rain drops hitting the bedroom window. A cool breeze with lull me to sleep. It will be a good sleep. Tomorrow the Garden Spot will be wet and green, alive, its thirst quenched--for a few days, anyway.
