-to ilona –
felicitations, my dear friend!
may our long connection never end.
may skies for you be ever blue
your garden grace forever true.
your love for bushes, trees and flowers,
so generous with your blogging hours
and musings from your “ivory tower”
surrounded by such country love
showered with blessings from above.
closest contact with this good earth
a walk in beauty, for all it’s worth-
beloved child of God since birth.
i am posting this today, so everyone can send
their greetings tomorrow! (1/26/2010)
did you ever think we’d get this far??
I’m so honored! Your poem is filled with the kind of thoughts I need right now- good times in the garden and good times with friends. Two of the greatest gifts of life. Thank you 🙂

Thank you , Rob 🙂
I’m of an age where the actual date matters little but the good wishes matter much.

Iiona, oh drat, I missed your birthday it seems so Happy Happy belated Birthday.
I hope you enjoy the Garden Show and that one of your favorite is going to be there to see. I am going during the week when the crowds will be smaller. Last year I went opening day and was lucky to get any pictures. I had to kind of go with the flow of the crowd.LOL!
At least it looks like one winter storm is going to miss us.
Lona, Thank You!
I know what you mean about the conflict of good pictures/crowds/featured speakers at the garden show.
