I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help and patience. You have all been patient, friendly and oh so smart and I appreciate it. I would never have thought I would enjoy a garden, but after my sister died on Thanksgiving, it brings me peace. I got my children's book published and in a few weeks it will be at Barnes & Noble and Amazon. I was quite amazed to get a letter from a Literary Agent wanting to know if they can market the book and am I interested in writing any more. I don't really know. This book was something to leave behind for my Grandson when Im gone and he is 7. At any rate, it was an honor to hear from them. I don't think of myself as a writer, but I can spin a pretty good story. LOL
Your kindness and spirit have helped me get through my grief and enjoy my secret garden. Thank you again.




Thats wonderful Harli. Congratulations on the book. Your garden is looking wonderful too, and it's so good to know that you are recovering from your loss. We pray that you will continue to get stronger and enjoy your garden even more.

i am very sorry to hear about your sister. I am glad you are dealing with it in such a creative way. Well done to get published! Not many people succeed in that! What is it called?

Thank you, it is called Roly Poly and Holey Moley on the Farm.
Here are links to the covers if you wish to get an idea.

Good oh. My son is in the process of turning my stories into books. We will print enough of them for all the family. It is a smashing feeling though to see what you have written in 'proper book form' rather than just on the Blog or the Computer screen.
Gardening is a great way to calm down. It can be frustrating, annoying, stressful and then you find a fantastic flower or a bird or an insect to stop and watch and what else matters?
