First post, first step in a continuing journey

So finally, I have taken the first concrete step towards making this blog the reality that I have been thinking of since blogging became commonplace. There are so many things to say, so many things to share that it seems like it may take forever to be able to cover all the things that whiz through my head.

First things first. Why write a blog?

I would like to document the journey that I have been making the past few decades appreciating and participating in the continuous development of gardens in this tropical paradise called the Philippines. In hindsight, I should have begun writing sooner as some of the observations were forgotten shortly after they have been made.

With this blog, I hope that somehow, someone will benefit from these observations and conclusions made either through mistakes committed or successes enjoyed. Of course, it will serve as a personal journal of a part of my life that has something to do with plants, gardens, and gardening. Increasingly, that aspect has been growing steadily through the years.

So I am making this blog both for myself as well as for anyone out there who by chance may stumble on this series of posts and may find it useful one way or another.

Let' go. . . . . .
