Last night while I lay sleeping...
The Cavalry arrived!
"There is an expression in America that inspires excitement and raises hope. When a situation seems hopeless and the cry is heard, the downtrodden senses his rescue on the horizon. 'The Cavalry is coming!' The victim feels he can survive long enough for the men of blue riding on horses to arrive."
This Grandmothers Garden has been rescued!
Thank you Stuart ♥
Several weeks ago I switched my feed to Feedburner.
For whatever reason,
that seems to be the moment when everything went crazy.
(Please note that Feedburner is not evil, indeed, Feedburner is innocent of any wrong doing.)
Soon after I made this change I began to observe:
- My posts weren't visible on Blotanical...
- FAV's were disappearing...
- Blotanists were kindly asking how to pick my posts...
- Many were offering kind condolences (as Stuart The Commander in Chief of all who can fix problems would be traveling forever and couldn't be reached.)
I was beginning to feel a bit forlorn.
Without new posts showing up on the Blotanical lists,
it can be a challenge for Blotanists
to find your latest posts to read and select from as they choose.
Picks and comments, FAV's and FAN's
are the sweet nectar
that invites a blogger to keep posting.

I began to feel like a ghost in a garden of blogs.
I could see each of you,
but very few could find me.
So as any good gardener would do,
I decided to cultivate the garden.
Instead of lamenting my misfortune
of readers not able to find me,
I chose to go on a
and visit as many of you as I could until the day,
somewhere on the distant horizon,
when my blog would be rescued.
Ohhhh... and I've had so much fun!
Blotanical is a wonderful directory
of Gardening Blogs
from all across this beautiful earth.
There is much to learn and discover
and glean inspiration from
as we take the time
to read each other's blogs.

During the past weeks I've delighted in discovering...
Wings of Glass at AnneTannes Kruidenklets
Can you even imagine how beautiful a butterfly would be with wings of glass?
A natural predator for Tomato Hornworm Caterpillar? The picture will amaze you!
Do you know where more tomatoes are produced than anywhere else in the world?
Do you have any idea how fast and furious an army of Squash bugs can be?
Fresh tomatoes in any language are all divine!
The first in a series of posts that are indeed the best I have ever encountered.
Do you even know what a Pullet is? I didn't.
I wish I could list all of the amazing posts I have read
to share with you.
But then I don't have to...
they are all right there at Blotanical
for you to read and enjoy!
♥ ♥ ♥
Many many thanks to Stuart
for sending in the troops!
And to those of you
who discovered alternative ways to find me...
you are the best!
You will too,
slow down and read
all the wonders
Blotanical has to offer.
