February 14 is Valentine`s Day, and while most people, including me, will be focusing their attention mainly on their significant other, I want to reach out to visitors to my blog, especially the faithful followers, to let you know that I really appreciate your visits and comments. Each of you have made me feel that blogging is a worthwhile undertaking. I am getting to know people from all parts of the world. I love to hear about you; how you live, what your talents and hobbies are, and what your special interests are. I look forward to seeing who has come to visit my blog and who has left me a note. Each day something new awaits me in the blogosphere.
I have been blogging for almost two years now and have noticed that some people still think my name is pronounced like “A Nellie.” I know my name is a bit unusual and probably a puzzle for most people to decipher so I feel I should introduce myself to those bloggers who are not close friends or family (and already know me). “Anneli” is not really that hard to pronounce if you think of it as “Anne” and “lee.” Put them together and you have “Anne-lee” but spelled “Anneli.”
I am always pleased to meet you on my blog or on yours.
In a recent post I included a photo of a rosebud trying to bloom all through our dreary winter. I thought you might like to see what it looks like when it’s in bloom. Royal Sunset is one of my favourite roses. This one is about 25 years old and has survived three or four moves. It has a sweet, delicate aroma that makes this rose as pleasing to the nose as it is to the eyes.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all my blogging friends!
