If you build it...

It's funny how an old friend stumbled upon my blog while researching on bauhinias (a kind of plant). He wasn't too surprised of course, given my farming background.

On the other hand, I was surprised to find him scouting around for information on plants. As it turns out, he has taken a fascination to gardening and is in the process of making over the garden in his new home.

My friend is also known as the Road Boss. He runs a successful company that organises driving holidays and adventure tours. I've always known him to be the fun-loving, nature-loving and thrill seeking kind of guy. It's good to know he's now a fellow gardener too.

That brings me to another point. A blog is like Disneyland - If you build it, they will come. I've met old friends, new friends and all sorts of people through the blog. The difference between a blog (like mine) and Disneyland is, mine has no gates. So, you never quite know who's visiting, even if it is an old friend.

Rusty t-shirts, ties, mugs, sunglasses... all good.

But yeah... you're right, when I started my blog it was for me to put down thoughts and enjoy crafting words into beauty and joy... but I made friends too and I marvel at the many blessings blogging has brought to me.

Such a sweet post Blur Ting. Just stopping by to say hello. I have been too crazed at work to blog or visit blogs very often.
