It's hard to believe and it snuck up on me but this is my 300th blog post. I feel like I should have planned for a better celebration. I'll save that for #325 I think. Who'd have "thunk" that I've had that much to share. I remember how hard it was originally to come up with an idea for a post. Some of my first post were pretty lame as I now look back at them. Here's one of my first ones....not a real page turner..LOL.

Once again I'm joining up with my fellow bloggers over at Little Red House to share a mosaic of photographs for Mosaic Monday.
In case you don't know these are Fuchsia flowers. I just love the plants but I've not been successful with keeping them alive here in Florida. Do you ever look at things, smell things, or hear things that remind you of your past? I find this happens to me often.
Whenever I see fuchsia plants, and there are many different varieties, I think of my friend Steve who once lived in San Francisco. The plants seemed to be very abundant in California. I have many wonderful memories of trips to SF to visit my friend Steve all the way back in the 70's, 80's and 90's. This is my post to those wonderful times. We are still friends to this day and I had the chance to see him, again, when he came to Florida in June. There's nothing like old friends who you share great memories with.
Congrats on reaching 300!!! It's quite a feat. And thanks for sharing your beautiful fuschias, too! xoxoReplyDelete
Congratulations on 300 posts. It is an achievement! I laugh over my early posts, too. Oh well. It's a learning process. Lovely fuschias and what a nice thing to be reminded of when you see them.ReplyDelete
Congrats! I enjoy ready your posts and searching other blogs linked to yours. I am trying to keep my blog going, but learning how to get it right. I have a "blog lesson" tomorrow. A great friend of mine is going to show me how it works, and may be in a year or 2 I'll get to 300.ReplyDelete
Keep up the wonderful work
Congratulations on your 300th post. Some days I still find it difficult to come up with something to say.ReplyDelete
I adore fuschia blooms. I haven't had much luck with them either. I think the blooms look like beautiful ballerinas in colorful tutus!!! Have a beautiful week!!!ReplyDelete
Hi there girlfriend....I cannot keep a fuschia blooming to save my soul. We just do NOT get along. These blooms are drop dead gorgeous. You definitely have the old green thumb. School starts back in two weeks and I take Buddy to the train for his 3 week hike of the Long Trail through the mts of Vermont to the Canadian border on Tuesday. I think he is crazy. Will then head off to Richmond to play with Eloise for a few days. Hope all is well in Tampa and it is not tooo hot. GenieReplyDelete
