Hello grampapa - I thank you kindly. It was such a wonderful and unique thing to happen on our wedding day. This is one of the most personal reasons why I garden because I feel connected to each and every bit of life that graces my garden. As I mentioned, plant life responds to us and our emotions and what a blessing to have a demonstration of that connection on that day.

Hi Marilyn - Thank you so much. An absolute pleasure to share. I am so happy you enjoyed it and found it inspiring.

Hi Cathy - And you just made ME smile! ^_^ Thank you for your kind words.

Hi there Sharon - I thank you so much for your kind words. It is one of my all time favorite songs. I realize I have a lot of catch up reading to do of your stories. I am in Asheville North Carolina as of tomorrow for some training. I will catch up then!

Hi Nanny - It is an absultely wonderful memory. You are so right. A relative filmed our entire wedding and we still get choked up when that part comes up.

I wish each of you the very best and I pray your own gardens are a source of inspiration.
