I am a lover of horticulture, gardening and the environment. At age 8, I sent away for a package of Zinnia seeds for 10 cents and I've been hooked ever since. After 25 years of being self-employed, I retired. That only lasted 4 years and I now work in a water conservation program: I buy grass from homeowners who are willing to convert to desert landscaping and lose that thirsty green stuff. I pursue what interests me and you can blame my sister for getting me into this blogging thing.

I've got it

Well, I finally got the DSL line installed and all the bugs worked out. It is so nice. I spent hours reading other people's blogs last night. I don't know what happened to my computer but I lost all my favorites when my husband flipped the power on and off. So I was looking at new people through Motherkitty, bornfool and Gary's blogs. They have a lot of interesting friends. Some make you laugh til you cry. But what I find is most amazing is that people from all walks of life from all over the world can touch each other. Then you understand that we all suffer from the human condition. We make mistakes and can laugh at ourselves. We have joy, sorrow, pride and love in our lives. We are fortunate that we have the privilege to access the internet. Blogging gives us the opportunity to express ourselves without fear of criticism, I suspect that's what makes it so appealing. Thank you Motherkitty for opening up a whole new world for me.

BTW, that's the flower from a new plant I got recently. It's called a cotelydon.

One of the neat things about blogging is learning new things... Like your flower you just posted, it is so cool, and I wouldn't have learned the name of it, or seen it if it wasn't for your blogging... I love all the flowers that are new to me....from all over the world....and learning about peoples feelings, thoughts, crafts and just meeting new friends....

I'm glad you have your DSL set up and now you can get to us

Glad you have found some of my commenters. I am proud of the hard work I have done to find blogs that I really enjoy. I never quit looking, because I have found that even good bloggers may stop blogging at any time, so I can always use replacements.

BTW, I hope you don't become one of those who stop.

Motherkitty & Tomas both opened my eyes to blogging and I will be forever grateful to them.

Hey, it's me again. I just wanted to say my list making is not the usual kind where things are written down then crossed off as they are done. So you were originally right about me being free and easy. I'm not really a structured person.

Glad to be of service. I have kind of an eclectic bunch of blogfriends as you probably noticed.
What I like the best about blogging is the closeness that we can grow to share. To me it's almost like family.

congrats on DSL and on new flower! Blogging is certainly addicting and I love how it connects you to others who you may never meet ordinarily.
