And Now For Something a Completely Different

My blog list is growing. I really enjoy reading about everyone's gardening adventures and it seems like every day I add a new blog to my list to follow. I learn so much from other garden bloggers and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by how encouraging you all are to my blog! Not that I'm surprised you readers are encouraging, I'm just surprised you have checked my blog out at all! So thanks to everyone!
The "completely different" part of this post is a blog I added to my list that has nothing to do with gardening. It is comic blog of delight and the man who posts there doesn't do so very often, so it's easy to follow. It is my younger son's blog (if you want to call it that, lol). He is an illustrator and graphic novelist who has had eight books published so far and is now working on a new one. The last five were written for kids and the next two will be too. We are very proud of him and of his work, not because of his successes, such as they are, but because he works so hard at what he does and he never gives up. His books do not bring him a lot of money, but they are his and he is doing what he loves. He also has a day job, as every starving artist does. His fiancee does the same thing and also lives a "double life", i.e. day job and art job. Between them they are two very hard workers! So here's to all people who dare to dream, do what they love and are willing to work for it!
OK, next time it's back to gardening. I promise.


  1. I love his pictures. He is very good. You have every right to be proud!

  2. Thank you so much Becky! He definitely has a style of his own.

  3. You have one very talented son! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi Nutmdg gardener, You can be very proud of your hard working son. I also love looking at other peoples garden bog. I also love quilting blogs too. So many ideas and much to learn! Nancy

    1. Thanks Nancy! You and I have a lot in common: retired, believers, gardeners, bloggers and quilters! Although I have to admit my quilting has taken a back seat these past few years. I appreciate your stopping in!
