Have y'all noticed how delightful we have become?

Maybe it is because we are all reveling in the lovely, cooler 
weather. Another gardening season is coming to a close, and even 
though we have been (variously) beset by floods, heat, cold, locusts, 
drought, and sandstorms, we have survived.

And a gardener who survives is ready to plan for the next round.
Sort of like boxers, I guess. We may be knocked down, we may even be 
bloody, but unless we get that final, absolute count-of-ten, we get 
back  on our feet to meet the bell.

I have been reading over a lot of posts from y'all, and there is a 
definite feeling of euphoria and hopefulness. We have weathered our 
storms and seem to be the better for them.

Congratulations to all at the Global Garden. I think we are really 
nice people, don't you?
