Awe shucks, it’s been a month since I joined Blotanical – a world-wide get-together where ideas spread as prolifically as the mature seeds of a dandelion puff caught in a spring breeze – or in my case, as profusely as my uncut coneflower seed heads will turn into pop-up plants next spring.
Each time I enter Blotanical it like attending a global gardening convention where bloggers cultivate cucumbers and culture creativity, but never seem to forget the magic and mystery involved in growing flowers and food, or houseplants and hostas.
Quite frankly, Stuart, I’m in awe of the amount of thought, time, energy, and attention you have put into creating this watering hole of like-minded swimmers and waders. Did you expect the tsunami of information seekers and sharers willing to splash their thoughts to and fro as they frolic in waves of gardening lore?
I’m humbled by the level of expertise shared in fellow Blotanists posts and plots, and often feel like a kid in a candy store when confronted by the sweet and delectable options of blogs to savor. Hmmm … that tangy tidbit looks good enough to fave, but then there’s choices of fans in this bin, and more faves on that shelf. What to choose, what to choose?
I quickly maxed out my initial allotment of faves and found myself adding fans that should actually be faves while I watched my point count inch to the 500-you-get-more-faves point. And now that I’ve made it to the Patron Blotanist mark, I’m still overwhelmed by the number of goodies I get to put into my candy-fave bag.
So Stuart … hat’s off … you’ve created a remarkable Blotanic design here, and as I slowly grow my portion of the global garden bed, I look forward to getting more Blotanic dirt under my nails in months to come.
