Thank you so much. Glad to see I'm entertaining someone besides myself. This is the perfect place to combine two of my loves - words and growing things. I'm glad you have a little slice of the Paradise Pie, too. I hope someday everyone that wants a slice can get it. It just feels . . . good.
Thanks for stopping by with your encouraging words.

Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
