Grow Your Blog 2014

Welcome to "Grow Your Blog" ! 
I  am so excited ti participate this year. 
I joined the world of blogging in 2007 and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. 
My post were random and short and were mostly about my home and garden....mostly my garden. 

I have grown a lot since then but pretty much still have no idea what I'm doing here most of the time and most of my post are still about my garden and love of plants. 
I also post about my crafts , my family some and post on healthy living and living with fibromyalgia.

About me........

I'm 61 years old and feeling it more every day. But I still love to live like I'm 40 and love it. I just run out of energy quicker than I used to. I am a passionate gardener and love to fill my little 3 acre lot with all of the plants I can every year...... 

I also love to create unusual garden beds with found and salvaged items. Trash pick up day will often find me slamming on the brakes and grabbing something cool from the pile left out for pickup. 

I also love to collect birdhouses and to take photos of the many birds that visit us through out the year.

I'm an avid crocheter and love to make hats which I give to family and friends and donate to charity every year. This year I was proud to be able to donate 65 hats to 
Big Brother Big Sister in St. Louis. 
I am also an artist and have really dedicated a lot of my time developing those skills in the past two years and have started a blog just for my art work.

So I guess that's enough about me for now ...if you want to know more just scroll through my blog posting and you get a pretty good idea for what and who I am. 
See ya around :)

  5. Your definitely coping well, Carol. I try to do the same and cut back judiciously to keep pace in spite of again bones. My flowers gardens and birding remain my passion, though I gave up veggie gardening two years ago. Mrs. T said we didn't need all those veggies and the farmers market could supply us with all the local and fresh one we needed. I sighed in relief on that one....:)
