Just for you or how I became a serial blogger

Last week marked the third anniversary of my blog.

It seems like only yesterday that I was taking the first tentative steps into this mysterious new world.

Back then, I didn’t even take my own photographs.

Now – you just can’t get away from them!

I like to think that I have developed since those early days –

And it’s all due to you: my crazy, loyal, wonderful readers!

Your support and kind words have encouraged me and filled my heart with warmth.

As a small token of my appreciation, I’m sending you a heart.

(OK – it’s a heart-shaped Special K cornflake.)

But I think it’s appropriate: from one cereal blogger to another.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
— Marcel Proust

Thank you so much for being such kind and inspiring gardeners!
