  2. The warmest of Thanksgiving wishes to you and your family as well Gail. For all of us who have a roof over our heads and food in our bellies, it's a time for gratitude. I'm so impressed that you said it in so many languages too! Enjoy!

  3. Frances,

    Hello dear! I am so glad I emailed Pam and asked to be included! The 2009 Spring Fling will be huge...

    I do wish I was at your house 'watching' you prepare the food!
    Can you see me on the side lines narrating the whole thing! Or better yet hollering out what I've read on a blog!

    Me and the Mr are going to be celebrating the day with friends...

    Happiest of holidays Frances! Say hello to all!

    Maraming salamat!
    That is many thanks in Tagalog( I am not, but part of my family is Filipino/american or fil-Am. That means there is lots of music, piano and guitar, singing, and tasty food!)

  44. Gail, Thank you, and a happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I tried to write a list of all the things I was thankful for, including meeting so many wonderful bloggers, but I just couldn't get it right. You've said it so simply and eloquently.

    P.S. I'm making only low-calorie dishes for Thanksgiving...NOT!

  57. Gail, and a Happy Thansgiving to you too!

    I've been looking back through your blog -- I especially love your posts Front Garden or Cinderella meets her prince and the Cedar Glade flowers. I didn't know that Shooting Star grew in TN. And your Phlox pilosa is magnificant. I received some of that in a trade last year and have been very impressed with it so far. I love how yours has spread around the garden.

    Me, too! It was n honor to see the garden you have created...what a fantastic environment to spend three seasons out of the year in...I am reserving judgment on the cold! I will visit my kid in Providence and see if the winter is as wonderful!

    Have a wonderful holiday.
