Blotanical addict

I'm new to blogging but I have quickly realized Blotanical is the place to be for quick and easy networking in the garden blogosphere. This site is just as addictive as gardening! It's a joy to receive so many welcomes when you become a member. I certainly liked hearing from many of the blotanists I'm already loyally following. Searching for blogs is made easily accessible through a popular picks category _ a great, time-saving feature. I see it as one-stop shopping around the world. I'm amazed at the size of this unique community and look forward to sharing the ups and downs of my obsession with fellow enthusiasts. It's also fun to gather points _ by sending comments, visiting "plots" _ so we all can build our cache of favorites, but it's just a great way to connect with each other. This in turn helps to build readership, which validates all our efforts in putting ourselves out there for everyone to see. Another bonus, in the middle of the night when I'm really craving all things gardening, I can go digging around Blotanical to get my fix.

Hello there !
You have the garden fascination bug too : )
Thank you for the fav ! .. my garden blog has lacked in actual "garden" posts because it has been such along winter.
I promise .. I truly am a gardener even though you can't tell that right now.
We have a new kitten in the house so things are a bit crazy .. it is almost like having a new baby : )
Ok .. this baby is furry and can run like the dickens .. haha
Glad you are finding your garden feet here .. hope to see some great posts from your garden adventures !

Thanks for stopping by everyone. I'm definitely learning so much, even in the few days I've been browsing Blotanical.

Joy -- I've got a cat addiction also, but two is the limit in this house, along with two dogs, hubby and baby!

Yes, I have fun with Blotanical too...it's quite habit forming to read all these wonderful blogs (and drool over photos) across the world.
Heh. I have a cat addiction, currently holding at 8, but my baby is long grown and I don't care much for dogs--Well, I always say I love all cats in general, and occasional dogs in particular.
Glad you're having such fun with blogging as well as gardening; your header photo is fantastic, too.

Hi! It was a bit of a mystery to find your blog, the link at blotanical didn't work and when I googled "garden muse" there were a number of them. But, I found you!!!! Hooray, I love your slip and slide :-)

Jodi, the header photo was pulled from one of the pics under "Splashes of Spring." I love how water beads on plants after a rain. Usually makes for great photos.

Melanie, yes there are many garden muses out there. But glad you were persistant and found me!
