Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who wrote in and told me they were still getting blog notifications. Yes, thankfully the notifications sent via are still working. The issue is with MailChimp, affecting over 200 people who signed up to be notified via the form in the sidebar. MailChimp is working on the problem and they asked me to publish another post to aid them in their troubleshooting. That’s all this is, another test post–but it gives me a chance to say thank you for your encouragement and for sticking with me.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Looks like things are working now. This techie stuff can be very frustrating.

Hi, Kathy,
I got this Thank post, but hadn’t gotten the previous 3. Since this was sent by mailchimp, maybe they’ve solved the problem. Now I’ll go back and read the posts I missed.
