Honey, yours is the best description I've read of Blotanical. A friend has urged me to get over there, but since my blog is not overtly gardening, I have hesitated. I shall check it out, thanks!

I'd say that was pretty apposite, well written and succinct!

I like the analogy to a garden too, just perfect!

Good Luck with it!

Curtiss Ann, Zoë, and PG,

I'm going to bask a moment in the warmth of your praise. Nope. I'll wrap it around me and carry it all day. Thanks, ladies.

Curtiss Ann,

It's wonderful you are checking out becoming a Blotanist.

Great post Mother Nature. I too loved the garden analogy and realise that, like a garden, I have very little control over it. It keeps surprising me every day because of the wonderful people who are part of it.

For curtissan and others, you don't have to be a garden blogger to enjoy Blotanical. We readily accept those who want to join in the community without a blog and just enjoy the social aspects of all that's on offer.

Enjoy your star.

I feel knighted. Thanks for the star.

When I see your name it means roses. I must get a Constance Spry.

It was a perfect post about a fascinating site and Stuart's really great effort. The quality of blogs on Blotanical make it a must-read for me, almost daily. No - make that daily. Anybody seen Philip's blog? Wowsers.

I can smell "addicton" all over the place, Stuart. I hope you are proud of yourself! lol

What a creative analogy...great post!

You have such a way with words. This is a beautiful description of Stuart's Blotanical site. It's a wonderful place to while away the hours. That's why I'm staying away lately....I don't trust myself to just spend half an hour and then leave. Too much to do at the moment!
Thanks for visiting and saying hello. It's always good to meet new blog friends :)

Thanks for spending your self alloted time with me.
