Back to school days., junior school, gold stars.


By mad


Isn’t it nice to receive praise from others, especially others you respect. Each time I read a blog or nice comment on my garden pictures from someone on GoY I feel as though I’ve been given a Gold Star. People are so generous on this site, thank you once again. Some are from names I haven’t explored yet, so then I have to search for them, and look at their’s. I am so amazed at what people do in their gardens. As Geoff Hamilton said we all create our little bit of Paradise in our gardens.

I've just given this blog a "like" so there is another "gold star" for you, Mad. In one of my recent blogs I've written about "golden trowel days" ~ anniversaries of when members joined GoY !

You've certainly made a welcome impact on GoY since you've become a member. Nice to have you on this group. :o)

That works Terra, thank you :))))

Daisy, yes you do. Especially when the significant other in your life can't do it - wouldn't know a blade of grass from a rose :(
