I saw A Way to Garden announced her 3rd year blog birthday (in March), and it got me wondering…just how old is my blog, anyway? And I didn’t even know which month I started it. So I looked back. Not a real post, but opened the blog on 09/09/03.
Posts get lost on blogs, so a time travel with something you may or may not know seemed a good occupation on a wintry day. It is still cold, here.
After trying out some css effect I introduced myself: A Bit About Me in 0-Three. Well, more was written about “design”; and as always, I digressed. And today? I don’t like the eighties styles anymore. What happened with that? 9/9/03 First actual garden related post, and the iteas mentioned are dead- I could not get that viburnum to grow in the spot spoken of (got mowed down), and the campanula carpatica is gone. The kerria is doing nicely and the leadwort turned out to be a favorite plant.

I have taken us through Posts from earliest beginning to the cusp of 2005. Perhaps I may continue from there another time. It was pleasurable for me to look through my past memories and notes. That, my friends is what our journals are for!
