Saying Thank You To Blotanical With Flowers

2010 was the start of a wonderful new world of garden-blogging for me. I began posting regularly at the end of October 2010 after picking up a few tips on blogging from online friends. Within a few weeks I was introduced to Blotanical by blotanists who were warm and friendly, offering tips like loving neighbours sharing pies or cupcakes over the garden fence.What a great introduction to me, a newbie who meandered almost blindfolded in the blogosphere. Overcoming the fear of being laughed at, I meekly tendered questions(which,in hindsight I realise are ridiculous and laughable questions) to my neighbours 'over the garden fence'. And here I am, at the end of the year, emerging unscathed from my tumbles and falls, richer for the experience I had gained. But more than the experience, I value the riches I had gathered in the form of my new-found gardening community of Blotanists.

To my Blotanist friends and to all the other bloggers I have met and who had visited My Garden Haven,

 I wish you bluebirds in the spring,
 to give your heart a song to sing,
 and then a blog, but more than that,
 I wish you...great gardening!!!

Seasons greetings and a Happy 2011 from me and my flowers in my garden haven.

  12. Hi mum, i'm attempting to grow a mini garden in my aquarium. :) starting with moss to look like miniature turf, maybe add other dwarf plants later. Any tips on getting moss to grow well?

  13. Hey Colin, you following my gardening footsteps?! That's a good start...with an aquarium. It is a terrarium so you need to cover it with a piece of glass so that the moisture is kept inside, and you don't need to water the moss. Make sure your terrarium gets some sunlight. Send me a progress report in a week's time.
