Growing Up

Friday, September 18, 2009

I have been blogging for about seven months now and still enjoying every bit of it. I have learnt a lot about gardening, plants and blogging. It has been quite an experience... thanks to you!!

As I walk to inspect my plants, I am happy to find new shoots growing out from my Chinese Fringe Flower plant that I have pruned a week ago.

I recalled that I was presented the Meme award by Autumn Belle and asked to write seven things about myself! But I have no idea yet what to write. Guess I am not as spontaneous as I should be.

The other plant that I had cut is my Cuphea... and the plant is doing well too :-)

Everyday when the sun sets, it would be time to water my plants for they have been 'sun bathed' the whole day. What a delight to see new shoots growing from the stalk of my rose.

In comparison, I find that my plants are growing faster than me. But I am glad to have found so many blogger friends here ;-)

Have a great day and happy blogging!

  1. Same here Stephanie! To me, meeting and exchanging ideas with other gardeners around the world is one of the best part of blogging :D

  2. Stephanie, I am glad to have found you, a great blogger friend too. Please do not be too burdened by the meme writeup. You don't owe me anything, my dear friend. In the meme, I really wanted to give you my sincere feedback of what I thought about you. Frankly speaking, I really do not feel comfortable writing about myself either, in fact, I feel embarassed when I think about it. I don't really dare to read my own meme post! Now as time passes by, I feel that I have known you for ages. Visiting each other's blogs and commenting is like dropping by a friend's house for a chit-chat. Isn't that great? Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments on my blog that means so much to lift my spirits especially when I am down.

  3. Stephanie - I love the blogger world too and have made so many friends and you are one of them. Your chinese fringe flower is beautiful. I am an ametuer gardener too. Been gardening forever but never knew much till I found blogging world.

  4. Blogging has opened up a whole new world to me too. And to come to a blog like yours and learn about plants I'd never seen....that's wonderful!! Loved the Chinese fringe flower! Your other plants look really happy!!

  5. We all can profit from blogging. Meeting new people, making friends, learning new "skills", and also having fun. I am glad I met you! Your plant world looks also very happy with putting out new growth and letting you know, hey we are doing well.

  6. Hi Steph. I get the same joy from walking around and observing what nature does. It is a thrill that never seems to abate.

Be spontaneous..that's what's fun with'll be surprised when one of us, out here in blogsphere, will share something in common ;) Btw, I love the yellow hibiscus in your last post!

  13. Hi Steph,
    I too share the same experience concerning bloging. Gardening took a new perspective for me when it is done together with good garden friends.

  16. yes, definitely fun. You probably know I'm new to blogging, but I just think it's so fun that we all maintain our own little blogs, and can just "drop by" and see what other people are thinking, seeing, and wanting to share. It's interesting to know what people in other part sof the US and world are doing!

    Oh - and to know there are lots of other people as nutty about gardening as I am!

  17. Hi Stephanie, I always enjoy dropping by your blog to see what's happening in your garden. It is fascinating to see plants that I've never seen before or to see how some of my old favorites do in your climate.
