A Guide to Northeastern Gardening: 100th Post And Three Year Anniversary-The Journey

~Guide To Northeastern Gardening 100th Post~
  Welcome to A Guide to Northeastern Gardening's 100th post!  Well it certainly has been a  journey.  When I first started blogging exactly three years ago today I never knew how long I would be pursuing it and couldn't even imagine reaching a 100th post.    Garden blogging has become an important part of who I am...sort of a life diary.  I get to share my experiences with other gardeners who share the same passion so I thank you all for visiting, commenting and sharing your knowledge, experiences and passion of gardening with me.

I have had a passion for gardening ever since I was at the age of five when I planted marigolds in pretty planters along the back of the old brick fireplace and gathered daisies for my mom...her favorite flower.  I still reside today in the home I grew up in on the south shore of Long Island with my husband and plan to never leave.  The property has evolved over the years into our own little sanctuary and hopefully we will be able to age gracefully there.   

~Through the Years 1995 to Present~
 So where does the blogging come in?  We decided to do something with our barren property in 1996 and put in an in ground pool.  At the time I was just starting a landscape design business and with the pool project everything just started falling into place.  I knew this was meant to be.   As the years have passed I have added and added gardens everywhere on the property and of is never finished because a garden constantly changes and well...isn't that half the joy of it?  It's funny how life works. One thing led to another and after having a conversation about the infamous blogging movie Julie and Julia I decided to pursue the world of blogging and started up A Guide to Northeastern Gardening.  

Now writing for three years I strive to make my posts informative and interesting.  I enjoy visiting other gardening blogs and leaving a comment or little note so the owner knows I've been there.  I just wish there was more time in a day so that I could visit everyone!  I am working on the photography end of things which has become a second passion that came out of this blog.  I am looking forward to where this blogging journey will continue to take me.  I thank each and every one of you for making this such a pleasurable experience and appreciate your dropping by once in a while and taking the time to leave a comment which I so enjoy reading.

So there you have it, three years and 100 posts. Thanks for helping me celebrate and the best to all of you.

As Always...Happy Gardening!

  1. Hi Lee...congratulations on your 100th post!! That's quite an accomplishment and one I hope I can celebrate one day! I've also had a passion for gardening since I was young...I got it from my Father. I always enjoy reading your blog and look forward to many more posts!!

  2. Thank you Christy. I enjoy your blog as well so keep on writing! It was my mom who bought the marigold seeds and helped me plant them and the story continues from there. It's nice that you got your passion of gardening from your dad and that it continues today.

  3. Congratulations on reaching 100! And Happy Blogaversary times 3! :) Your garden is quite beautiful, and even though, due to zone differences, I can't grow all the plants that you can, I love to see the structure and color in your garden. I also enjoyed hearing a little bit of the background of your garden and your blog.

  4. I too wish to add my congrats... your experience with blogging seems to parallel my own. One of my favorite pastimes is to get into the gardens early and take a couple hundred photos and being able to share them makes it all the more fun! Looking forward to all that you will share in the future! Larry

  5. Thank you Holley. I love reading your fun and uplifting posts. Larry-your photographs are wonderful and I can understand how much you enjoy taking them. I love going out into the garden and taking tons of photos then deciding which ones are 'worthy' of posting...being able to share them definitely makes it all the more fun!

  6. Congratulations on your 100th post, Lee! I really enjoy your blog and am glad it's become part of your life. Blogging is fun, isn't it, and you get to make a lot of great virtual gardening "friends".

  7. Thanks so much Astrid. 100 posts is exciting! I really enjoy visiting your blog as well. I think the reason I have loved writing so much is because of all the virtual "friends" out there with whom I get to live and share their garden ventures...always looking forward to what is next!

  8. Lee, Your blog is wonderful and I look forward to every posting, although I don't always leave a comment due to time restraints. Congratulations on your 100th posting and 3 years. Here's wishing you many more years of happy blogging! P. x

  9. Thank you Pam. I feel the same way about your postings...always such a pleasure to visit! Blogging certainly has been a very rewarding experience and I love all my on-line gardening friends! I just hope I can keep coming up with interesting topics to write about...but I guess there is always something to talk about in the garden!


Thank you for visiting. I love reading your comments and knowing you have been here, and will try to reciprocate on your blog. If you have any questions I will try my very best to answer them. As always...HAPPY GARDENING!
