And this is also our 300th post. Cheers!)

  2. Congratulations! You've been blogging a year longer than I have.

    Just looked at your weather and it looks cold up there.

    1. Thanks, Shirley. Yes, winter is blowing in just in time for Halloween. It happens sometimes--the kiddies will be padded with parkas and sweats under their costumes. It might even snow. Ugh. I'm not ready for it.

    1. Thanks, Heather! I'm glad we've become blogging friends lately. One of these days we should meet, since we live near each other. :)

  6. Extra special congrats Beth for both milestones. Looks like we are both about to get hit with a taste of winter. Stay warm and I love what you did with some of those billions of leaves!!

    1. Thank you, Donna! Yes, it seems winter is about to descend for its long seasonal stay. Too many leaves to count and I need to get out there raking instead of messing around in PicMonkey. ;-)

  7. Congratulations, Beth, I love your really bright pink and red leaves. The time does really fly by. I'm looking at my 4th blogoversary next April, but at my present rate I won't make it to 300. That's a lot!

    1. Thanks, Hannah! The PicMonkey effect made them look like an old Polaroid shot--a little brighter than they really are, but I thought it gave it a "time passage" look. Early congrats to you, too!

    1. Thanks, Diana! I feel the same way about your blog--a window into Western Cape, South Africa! This is one of the best things about blogging ... and garden blogging, in particular. Cheers!

  10. Congratulations on your 4th blogoversary! And 300 is quite an achievement. I've so enjoyed reading your posts these last four years and best of all, getting to meet you in person this past September, Beth. Wishing you many more years of blogging and gardening!

    1. Thank you, Rose! Now that we've met in person I feel especially richly blessed. Our visit to Rotary Botanical Gardens was fun, and we must visit more gardens together in 2015. :)

  11. Pretty impressive Beth--congratulations! I love your decorative announcement, shows how creative you are. May you have more years of doing what you love. As Diana wrote, you are my window into Wisconsin, a place I've never visited.

    1. Thanks, Susie! PicMonkey is loads of fun! I wasn't happy with the original photos, but PicMonkey let me play around with the silly image a bit to make a playful greeting. If you ever visit Wisconsin, let me know so we can meet in person. Cheers!

  12. The second anniversary post I've visited today! It made me look at when I started. Turns out I've been blogging for longer than you but you have posted more posts. I'd better look to it! Happy Bloggaversary! Many happy returns.

    1. Hi Lucy: Must be that time of year. My original goal was to blog once a week for one year. When that year was up, I didn't want to stop. I haven't kept up the original pace, but I try to get in at least four posts/month. Congrats on your many years of blogging, too!

  13. *clap clap clap*

    Virtual applause :-D

    Happy anniversary and look forward to many more wonderful posts from you in years to come. You're one of my favorite garden bloggers! (And no I don't say that to everyone...) ;-)

    1. Thank you! Time passes fast, doesn't it? PicMonkey has so many fun features. Most of the time I simply use it for cropping and light editing, but occasionally it's fun to try some of the other creative options. :)

  15. Fun way to announce 4 years. I'll use plain old words to say "Congratulations!"

    1. Thanks, Ricki! I didn't realize it was the 300th post until I checked, which was kind of shocking. How did I time that? It was not at all planned.

  20. Oh, I missed this post, too busy these days. Congratulations!! That means my 4 years anniversary is soon too, as I am only just over 2 months behind you – although I am many posts behind you, more than 100 – how do you find time to write, I just can’t squeeze enough hours in the day. Happy anniversary!

    1. Now I'm just getting back to respond to some older posts. Thanks, Helene, it has been fun to stay in touch over the years and even meet your last year! The writing just keeps coming. The part that I find difficult to keep up with is organizing, editing, and posting photos. But it's all fun. Happy anniversary to you, too!

  21. Wow! Congratulations. Love the photo... There is a now-infamous chant, originating in a speech at a political conference here some years ago, that suddenly feels appropriate: Four More Years!!!

    1. Thanks, Janet. :) I hope to keep going as long as it seems right. It will be interesting to see the state of blogs four years from now. But as long as it's fun and the community keeps going, I will blog. I hope you will, too!
