I launched this blog on this day in 2010. Good gravy, has it been this long? That was such a red-letter day, I posted twice!

So thank you, readers:
182 of you get these posts delivered to your mailbox;
330 via WordPress Reader;
an unknown number via other means through various bookmarking applications.

But if you don’t subscribe, please consider doing so. It may be the best zero cents you’ll ever spend!

A few of you have told me that my morning posts (complete with all the typos, you long-suffers, you!) are a tonic. You can get them delivered by invisible hand to your email in-box, where they will await your leisure to enrapt or enrage you. I may be biased, but I think a little Backyard & Beyond in the morning beats yet another cute-cat-defying-gravity video, or, (cough, cough, gag, gag!) the news.

And have you considered gifting this blog to others? You can help me spread the word in person, on social media, etc. Deep in a thicket of weeping ornamental cherry in Green-Wood, this House Finch was singing like the madness of spring had already enlarged his gonads.

And so the seasonal eruption of life begins again!

    It turned out I could not re-blog my earliest pieces more than once, so I linked to them instead.
