The 14th day of this month was my one year blogversary day. I started a post draft a few days before that day. The day came and went, and I did not get time to finish the post for the day. Actually, struggling to find the time has always been the common theme in my one year experience with the blogging. With only 79 posts to the day, obviously I am not a prolific writer, but how glad I am that I made it to my one year blogversary!
We had a good day of rain several days ago, which was much needed in my area. I would like to present you some foliage and blooms in my rain splashed garden along with my one year blogversary rambling.

As lots of my readers might have known, English is my second language. I know most of my blog friends can flow their thoughts naturally through their flying fingers without the need to think about the grammar, spelling or the organization of the sentence. For me, I need to look up the dictionary to make sure I am not saying something I didn't mean to. Not to mention the grammar, spelling or a common English saying. Although I tried to check as much as I can before I click the "Publish" button, I am sure there still have been lots of mistakes in my writing. Thanks to all my forgiving readers for the encouragement you have given me over the past year by reading my blog and leaving the comments! I still could not believe my blog got nearly 7900 visitors from all over the world, and more than 21600 hits within one year.

|Lemon Lime Warneckii is now blooming|
To end this post, I need to ask "the question of the post" :) Could anybody identify the cultivar of the hibiscus I have in my header picture? I got two cuttings over one year ago, and now they are both blooming. One has been identified by Floridagirl at "Peace in the Valley" as "Jane Cowell", and the one in the header picture is still unknown. Thanks!
