A Tangled Web


Welcome to my new blog!

Life sometimes becomes a tangled web. Perhaps it's a message that it's time to change, think things over, move on.

I will post here now and then, but in all honesty I do believe my addiction to blogging has been curtailed by losing the ability to share my photos on Across The Pond. My paid storage problems with Google/Picasa have not been resolved. Three plus years of blogging have been fun but whether I can keep going is something I have to give serious thought to. I really enjoyed the past week spending time away from the computer doing other things.


With Spring here and plenty of garden work beckoning, I need to be outside raking, digging, pruning and planting. I need to find a large tree to replace the ones removed recently. Their huge old roots cracked and lifted the driveway requiring expensive replacement of a large section last week. We miss our trees. They gave the front porch shade and privacy from the street. The birds miss the tree branches above their bathing/feeding station. Would they like a Japanese flowering cherry, perhaps a Kousa dogwood, or a Golden-Rain-Tree? Something fast growing so we can enjoy it for several years hopefully!!!



I'll be working on this new blog site unless things are repaired on Across The Pond. I would miss you all very much if I just vacated blogland.............so come see me here now and then. I'll be off to Africa mid-May and I hope to bring back images to share with you following that trip of a lifetime.

  7. Hi Mary! You know that I will follow you where ever you go!!! I like the name of your blog, very refreshing!! I just came in for a few moments to eat some lunch, and then back outside I go. Now that the greenhouse is down here next to the house I have been soooo busy with it. Plus I have so many things to be planted, I guess if I quite buying all those pretty plants!!! I bought two new peonys (peonies?) today, and another clematis too. You are wanting to replace some of your trees; have you thought of a fruit tree? Might not be what you want or come to think of it probably slow to grow, but the birds would like it!!
    Well, gotta run, finished lunch, more playing in the dirt, sigh, my poor fingernails!
    Take Care!

  9. I'm glad you don't 'give up'! Would not like to know that you were not blogging any longer. I remember seeing that little lady at SuzAnna's. She's a beauty. I'm taking care of grandchildren today while Granddaddy Larry and daughters Laura and Leah visit their grandmother in Clinton. Leah just called to say, Granny doesn't recognize me". A breath of fresh air...we could use that about now!

  11. I love the name of your new blog. And remember, we will find you wherever you are!!

    I am very excited for you on your trip to Africa. Indeed, a trip of a lifetime! And I'm sorry about your trees. Something similar happened to one of our patio's from a large tree. It was like seeing an old friend go.

    I hope you have a happy weekend, Mary.

    xoxo

  12. Hey Mary!

    Glad to know where you are. I can't believe all of the trouble you have had with your blog and photos! Maybe the break while you are in Africa will allow it to FIX itself!

    Look at the photo of the woman. She looks like Aunt Bea on The Andy Griffith Show.

    Take care!

  14. Hi Mary! This is something that happens to all of us bloggers who have been going for a couple of years. I thought of quitting too, but then I decided that I will only post when I feel like it and when I have time. I go through my bloglist now and then and visit old friends but I won´t let it be a burdon ..just for fun. To think of it we don´t "terrorize" our "realtime" friends and neighbours every single day! It´s OK to go visit now and then. The best of friends never disapear! SO I hope You will continue, it´s always a pleasure to visit You!
    Hugs/ Liisa

  28. Mary, It would break my heart if you quit blogging. Maybe you just need to extend your break a bit more.
