Hi! I came across your blog while I was was looking for gardening related blogs to feature on a post, on my own blog.

I choose to add yours to my list @ http://acquiredflavor.blogspot.com/2009/09/green-thumbs-are-in-need-of-being.html .

If you would like for me to take your link off my list let me know or if you would like to add anything to it, feel free to comment!

Sigh. Your work always leaves me content and peaceful! I love what you do.

If you ever find yourself in Los Angeles, I'd love to hire you for a consultation. You offered great suggestions on Dave's Garden for making a kid-friendly little side yard on my busy, non-private corner.

Keep the pictures comin'!

Greetings All,
Thanks for the comments.
It always feels good to hear what you have to say.
And I could use some uplifting news these days.

Seems like what is left of my left lung and my compromised right lung are in a state of revolt.
Feels like one or what is left of the other has collapsed again and I might be in for another round of who knows what .

In the mean time, I keep a positive outlook and am thankful for each day.

Keep happy and gardening .
Michelle

The metal back drop to the outdoor kitchen looks amazing. I would love to see more of that.

Good one on "B-4 , During, and After" and it helps a lot.

I have used the AV Planners Inc for all "screen installation" and their serivice is the best. You can know more about them in "http://www.avplannersinc.com/index.php/av-installation".
