Celebrating! 1 Year of Tendrils Reaching Out from the Bay Area


In Celebration: 1 Year since I began sending out these tendrils...
 - short features and photos - reaching out into cyberspace to connect with readers worldwide. 
What an incredible journey! 
One that has given rise to countless friendships and connections in the virtual world, 
and under fortunate circumstances... every so often, in real life.

((In truth, I've just checked the date of my first 'Insomnia' post.
Apparently life has been so hectic - with much on my plate, so to speak,
that yesterday, in fact, heralded the Blogiversary of Bay Area Tendrils.

... aka Bay Area Tendrils Garden Travel ))


Thank you, T., for appreciating my passion for the art of the garden,
and for accompanying me on too-many-to-count short trips and lengthy sojourns.
Your love of birding and nature enhances my days.

  7. Help!
    Thus far we have three versions - blogaversary / blogiversary / blogoversary... I googled and found: blogiversary. But felt compelled to change the spelling to and 'a'... and now I'm about to change it back;~))

  34. Congrats Alice.
    I was disappointed that I didn't get to hear you speak the other night at Marin Art and Garden.
    I was attending the SPAWN, Sierra Club and others at the Mill Valley Community center to hear about our local water challenges and what we as members of society can do to make a positive difference.

    Love your photos of Sam. P Taylor Park. A local favorite.
    Your second to last image looks just like the creek / falls / natural swimming hole along the Cascade Valley trail in Mill Valley.
    A fantastic place to take a dip on a hot spring day.
