Paula's Patch: A Minnesota Garden

Come wander in; my gate is always open! Gardening / Birding

My Plant Journal February 17, 2012

Today I added a Plant Journal page to my site (see Gardening tab in upper right corner).

Since I’m not doing a very good job of referring to my offline, print version I thought maybe I’d try keeping it here. I was going to make it private, but thought maybe other gardeners would like to see it. Get inspiration, ideas and let me know what you’re doing in your garden — I love new ideas! Go to My Plant Journal.

Don’t forget that today is the first day of the Great Backyard Bird Count. You need just 15 minutes any or all days (Feb 17-20, 2012) to count birds wherever you are (doesn’t have to be your backyard). Watch video instructions and get your Regional Bird list count/tally sheet. I’m counting :-)…here;s what I’ve counted so far today — northern cardinal, junco and crow. With the sunshine I’m sure there will be many more to see.

P.S. SOON! I need to move this site from a free platform to something that gives me more flexibility with the appearance, as well as tools for the admin of keeping it up. If you have experience with moving a site from to, I’d love to hear your experiences – pros and cons. Thanks!

  1. Paula, like the journal idea? Have you considered an upgrade and staying on I have an audio upgrade on my blog, but went for a package upgrade on my website ( that included fonts, video, and customization. But one of the reasons I went with WordPress was the ability to move eventually to an independent host. Haven’t tried moving anything though.
