5th Blogoversary!

By Kate_miller
My, how time flies when you're having fun.
5th Blogoversary!Tomorrow is my 5th Blogoversary
5 years.700 posts.Countless new blogging friends. Thousands of impulse plant purchases.
And, the odd realization that I've been blogging since before blogging was cool.

5th Blogoversary!

T-Shirt Give Away. Just leave a comment.

I began this humble effort back in the Dark Ages.
There was no Twitter. No Facebook. (Restricted to college kids at the time.) No Blotanical. No r.e.s.p.e.c.t.  People who knew what blogs were thought I was silly for having one. People who'd never heard of blogs looked at me funny when I tried to explain what they were.
It's loads more fun nowadays. Don't ya just love how big your world becomes when you start blogging? All the kindred spirits you meet? It's like a whole new virtual family. And, you'd never know they existed were it not for their blogs... 
So, anyhoo... 5 years. Wow. Who would have thought I could drone on about flowers for 5 solid years? 
This calls for a celebration. So, I'm giving away my all-time favorite t-shirt. 
Now don't worry. I'm not sending you mine. You're getting a new one. A clean one! But, you'll get to look just like me. Which is a super scary thought...
5th Blogoversary!
To enter the drawing for this cute as a button t-shirt, simply leave a comment and tell me what you love most about blogging.
And, to those of you who have visited here before... thanks for being out there. I feel fortunate to have met you.
* My darling daughter will randomly select a winner, from the commenters, next Friday.
