What do Buddleia and Blotanical have in common?
Both attract beautiful creatures, who love gardens! Each hosts the possibility of meaningful exchanges between one or more visitors and standout from the many other blossoming plants and blogs within their realms. Both usually have one person behind the scenes tending and carefully considering the welfare of the whole. Buddleia can be slow to come back to life and Blotanical can sometimes be slow to download. Nourishment and inspiration abounds inside the intricacy of florets and pixels. The element of surprise is ever constant in searching through the many petals and plots where one might land. Regular visitors return time and again to explore the hidden terrains of each. Of course, there are differences too. One is that Buddleia will go dormant, where as, Blotanical never does and it is nearly impossible to keep up with all the daily, thoughtful posts blooming there. Also Buddleia can only reach so high and wide, where Blotanical stretches across all borders and oceans into the leafy lives of gardeners the world over. Buddleia and Blotanical are both very giving, inspiring and rewarding. I am glad there is room in my life and garden for both.
