Catching Up...

I'm sure most of you are familiar with Pinterest a new social media site where you can create boards and pin (a virtual pin board) anything you see on line that inspires you or that you want to remember for future use. It's totally fun and extremely useful!

It is always nice to find other FL garden blogs and I thank you for posting these new links here.

I visited your Pinterest page and it looks good. Lots of gardens to visit, and inspiration galore.

I won't be joining Pinterest because you have to be a member of FB and I'm not going to do that.

Thanks for the link to your page though.

Enjoy this great weather we are having before it's too late.

I always appreciate finding more Florida gardening blogs. There is always something new to learn and the photos are fantastic at many of the Florida blogs.

I will have to figure out Pinterest it seems as everyone is jumping on board. I am just getting used to Facebook.

OH I'm so excited about finding your blog. I would love it if you stopped by my Our Florida Bungalow blog and followed along.
We've lived in FL for about 8 years but this is the first year I've REALLY had my vegetable garden going and getting more interested in all the landscaping my husband does.
Can't wait to look at all these other blogs!
