Three years and three months ago, Meta found my blog and subscribed. That makes her almost a “charter” subscriber because I began writing the blog only two-and-a-half months earlier than her subscribership.

Back in the old days, she commented on my posts more than she does now. I guess she became bashful.

Meta even came to meet me which you can read about at Garden Visitors. Don’t judge us too harshly. The humidity was at least 200% that day and we had been digging up all kinds of plants for her to take home in her minivan after we had emptied it of all the plants she brought me.

Today she shared with me how well her Lion’s Tail is growing in her compost pile. Both of us have long admired Lion’s Tail and acquired our plants before we met each other. It took me years to find the “good” kind with skinny leaves and a pretty bloom. You can read about the other kind here. I moved mine this year and it may not bloom as it tries to recover from transplant shock. Her blooms are magnificent. I forgot to ask her if the bees and butterflies flock to her compost pile to feed on the Lion’s Tail.

Meta, please come back and talk to us in the Comments. That goes for the rest of you, too.
