Happy Christmas from Grows on You!


By peter


Hello Everyone,

We just thought we’d say a great big Happy Christmas!! We hope you and your families have a fantastic time over the festive period and wish you all the best for 2009.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Looking back over the year, it’s been quite a ride for us. Ajay has successfully navigated his first year of fatherhood, and in the summer I was married!

We also feel like we’ve shared in the lives of our members and are privileged to be able to do so. We’re both extremely proud of what the site has achieved, and proud of all of you – the people that make GoY such a great site.

We’re really looking forward to 2009 and hope you all join us for another growing season.

Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas and a marvellous New Year!!

Best wishes
Peter & Ajay

Grows On You is so much more than merely a gardening group.
It's a worldwide family of different personalities and nationalities. Gardening is our common interest, but via this forum we share good news and sad times.

And I've made so many wonderful GoY friends!
Today is Christmas Eve and I've just received a Christmas card from a Californian GoY member ~ how's that for great timing ?

I'm looking forward to exchanging more messages and photos with everyone in the new year.

Happy Christmas to Peter, Ajay and families. Thanks so much for your special support during 2008.

And HAPPY GARDENING to everyone in 2009. xxx

Missed the opportunity to send you personal greetings for Christmas (not really...the card I posted was meant for all of GoY and that includes you, too) Happy New Year and may you both continue to prosper as you dig deep into married and family life....every year is a blessing added

I can only echo all the above!

It is truly amazing what GOY has achieved, both online and, for so many, in real life!

Can't wait to wish you a Happy 2nd Birthday next month - won't this be a great start to a new year!!!!
