"Yours is another garden that should be higher up on the inspiration list! You definitely have my vote. (I'm beginning to think people who are voting are not doing it based on merit -- I'm seeing too many votes going to yards not nearly as lovely as yours.)"

"Love your Title - I cant tell you how many times I have said the same thing - I even feel better when I am out there! We have many similarities in our yards - frogs, pond, passion flower, THERAPY, and mine has been about a 12 year hobby too! I loved every picture."
