First I want to say Happy Easter to everyone. I have a fun Easter planned: going to the north side of Chicago to hang with Middle Child. We'll go to Garfield Park Conservatory, and eat and window shop in Andersonville, camera in tow. Our Easter weather's not looking that great - high 38 degrees, 40% chance of snow showers, but I don't care, we're gonna have big fun. We always do. She's the middle child after all. . .
What are your Easter plans?
I hope it's not too late. . . I changed my mind. . .
Melanie at Old Country Gardens tagged me a couple of days ago. I played yesterday but didn't tag anyone else. I didn't want to be a bother. But then I was thinking about it. I didn't feel bothered, and it was fun. I met new bloggers, that was cool. And I changed my mind. It's my prerogative, right? So I'm bothering.
Here's how it works: I post ten weird or random facts about me that most people don't know. (I did that yesterday.) Then at the end I tag five more bloggers and state why I tagged them. Since I'm doing the tagging this time, I'm adding this caveat: Whomever I tag gets to decide if they want to play, whether or not to tag more bloggers, and if they do, they can be flexible in how many bloggers they tag. (Can you tell I'm not big on 'rules?')
Here's who I'm tagging and why:
Esther in the Garden I love Esther's blog - just came across it a few days ago, and had to go back and read every post. (Lucky for me Esther in the Garden is a new blog, so that didn't take too awfully long.) I'm sure I don't 'get it' all the time. I find I attach my own meanings to her posts, as I too am married to a Martian. (Never you mind that I come from a different planet too.) I love Esther's blog, from the continuing story to the excellent writing, the humor, the characters, her garden, her creativity, and her beautiful artwork. And I'm dying to see her ten weird or random facts.
The Life of the Garden Kimberley at The Life of the Garden is a new gardener as well as a new garden blogger. I love the excitement and enthusiasm of new gardeners. Kimberley will be transplanting her home-grown seedlings into her community garden plot later this spring. She and I seem to have a lot in common. I'm curious to see what her ten will be.
New Sprout Priscilla at New Sprout shows how even an apartment dweller can be a gardener. Priscilla is in college, going for her Associates degree in Landscape and Horticulture. She gardens on her balcony. I enjoy reading about her love of plants and nature. I like her photography too.
Lady Greenthumb's Garden A new garden blogger, Viooltje gardens in Croatia, a place I don't know much about. I feel like a visit to her blog is cultural geography lesson and a guided tour. Her country is beautiful. I love reading her blog and looking at her photos.
Heimdal Marie is a new garden blogger too. She lives with her husband on their farm in Norway, another beautiful country. She translates part of her blog into English, but I would visit even if she didn't, just for her beautiful photos. I love visiting international gardens.
Tag ladies, you're it! I hope you'll play. It was funner than I thought it'd be. I think you'll enjoy it too.
