I just love it when spring blooms get confused and bloom in winter. This makes some gardeners worried, but the weather here is so mild, and so many plants get confused, that I've learned that it usually does no harm. They will usually just go dormant again when/if the weather gets colder and then bloom again in the spring. Besides, a bloom is a bloom, and something to be cherished, whether the bloom is in or out of season.
Something else to be cherished is the garden blogging community. I just love that there are other garden lovers in which to converse with, learn from, relate to, and befriend. Sometimes they surprise me, too.
I got one such surprise from Sherry of If Only Sweat Were Irrigation. Sherry has bestowed upon me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Sherry's garden is full of roses, too. She gardens in Florida, which is different from growing roses in Texas.
Of course, I am required to answer a few questions:
1. What would you do if you won $10,000 tomorrow?
I'd do the happy dance, then run out and buy the garden ornament I've been bugging my husband about for months now.
2. Best lifetime moment?
Laughing with my children.
3. Are you happy?
Always. Well, almost always.
4. Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
Neither. I'm old-fashioned that way.
5. If you could change something in your life what would it be?
I'd purchase the afore-mentioned garden ornament. (Just kidding, honey!) :)
6. What is your biggest vice/habit in life?
The garden. It makes me wish for more, like that afore-mentioned - well, you know.
7. What is a good point about you? A negative point?
I love to be challenged, thus - I'm easily bored.
8. What is your most embarrassing lifetime moment?
I have so many, I usually just shrug them off.
9. What is your favorite flower?
10. What's your biggest love in life?
I also want to mention Jason at Garden in a City, and Ms. Grubbyfungus from Three Pea Homestead. Both of them awarded my blog the Sunshine award (Jason several months previous, Ms. Grubbyfungus recently), but since I had already received this award, I must decline. But, still, I appreciate the thought.
A big Thank You from me to Sherry, Jason, and Ms. Grubbyfungus. Instead of passing the award along, I would love instead to tell every garden blogger how much their friendship, knowledge, comments, and passion for gardening mean to me.
Thank you, all.
