Happy Thanksgiving: A Note of Thanks to You

Thanksgiving 2017
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for. Life has its ups and downs and sometimes hands us challenges, but it is always best to look for the positive, such as good health, a comfortable home, the love of family and friends, and of course the beauty of a garden. We often take so much that we have for granted, so on occasion, I like to share one of my favorite quotes, "Life is not about counting the days but making the days count...and while you're making the days count, always be sure to stop and smell the roses." I know this is a combination of two quotes and a little cliche, but these are words I try to live by.

While reflecting today, I want to thank all my readers who have followed me throughout the years, many whom I feel I've gotten to know on a more personal level. I appreciate all your visits and comments and love to visit your blogs. You've made me laugh, cry (sometimes a combination of both!) and your posts and beautiful photographs are something I always look forward to. I never knew that when I started this blog in 2010, that blogging would form so many new relationships and develop such close connections with others who share the same passion, whether they be in the same area or far away. 
Thoughts of Spring!

I look forward to many more years of your wonderful posts and visits, and maybe someday I will actually get to meet you in person! In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy your gardens and other journeys virtually. Keep on blogging, and as you celebrate this day, I wish you and yours all the best that life has to offer.
 ~Happy Thanksgiving!~

And As Always...Happy Gardening!

  1. I always love reading your blog, Lee so I'm thankful to you too.
    Life has its ups and downs - you are right, I agree.
    Happy belated Thanksgiving!

  2. Lee, what a lovely post. I so enjoy your blog and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    1. Thank you Denise. It is always nice to see your visits. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving too.

  3. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and were able to enjoy the beautiful fall weather today. Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoy the beauty of your photos. Alana

    1. Alana-it is always a pleasure visiting you as well. The weather has been wonderful for almost December. Enjoy!

  4. Lee, that was a lovely post! I’ve had a rough year, but still finding gratitude where I can!

    1. Good for you Robin. I always try to look for the positive. It's often better to think of the glass as "half full" rather than "half empty". It puts a better perspective on things. Hope the new year brings better times your way.


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!
