What Are You Thankful For This Year?
shinyalloy mentioned starting a thread here for mentioning things you are thankful for, so I am jumping in to start the thread...
I am thankful for all the really nice people in this forum. People here are especially kind and generous to each other, and that is a precious thing.
I am thankful for the chance through the exchanges and round robins to try growing so many more types of seeds/plants than I could ever have if I had to buy all the seeds. This has expanded my horizon in just 2 years from growing mostly roses, to other perennial flowers, to including some vegetables/fruit. I would never have learned to appreciate chinese forget-me-nots and rediscover cosmos if someone had not sent me extra seeds that were not on my wish lists.
I am grateful, this year, for the gift of time. Between my job and helping out my elderly parents, I have not had a free weekend since spring. Now I have vacation time I have to use or lose, which means about 3 weeks of vacation over the holidays.
I am grateful for the mild weather this year that will make working outdoors easier, and grateful for a small yard to make catching up on 6 months of outdoor chores possible.
What are you grateful for?
