    Hi Mr. Choo
    I am the lady who works at Vineland Nurseries. I have shared your website with Jim and Simone and some of my friends. We are all inspired by your lovely garden.
    Cheers.
    Liz

      Hi Liz,
      Thanks. Such a positive comment from a knowledgeable plant person like yourself is very encouraging to us. It was Jim that got us addicted to ornamental conifers and maples many years ago when I accidentally stopped by Vineland Nurseries.

      Hi Linda, Thanks for your encouraging comment. It is supposed to be spring here, but most of our garden is still under piles of snow.

    I love your garden!!!!! I want to follow your blog! So far, I haven’t found the Follow Blog spot. I admire your gardening skills. What a beautiful sight! Thanks for sharing. We live in Iowa, and no spring yet.

      Hi Karen, Thanks for the encouraging comments. If I wipe off the nose print on my window, I can still see a couple of feet of snow in the garden.
      I have not been a regular blogger, and only wrote once or twice a year in the past. I did not make much effort on the feed subscription part of my site in this revision. I will try to look into it. For now, if you scroll to the bottom right and click on ‘Entries (RSS)’, you can still subscribe to the RSS feed. (This may not work for the Chrome browser.)
