23~ Hola, Jacarandas & Happy Anniversary ChickenBlog

They're back, the jacarandas are in bloom. Both of our trees have burst their buds and are showering everything in snowy drifts of purple. Look for these all over Southern California. And all over Chickenblog, for that matter. I even planted one of these enchanting trees at our home where we were Jolly Green Ranchers.

Sometimes, in a fit of wishful desperation, I read articles with bullet points about how to build a successful blog, and those almost always include a sharp rebuke of blogs with 'too many subjects or labels.' You know, kind of like Chickenblog... too many labels to count, from A to Z, but with well over three thousand posts, in fifteen years, I love my labels. I wish there were more. Every label creates a more efficient means of finding old posts, searching the archives, bringing up particular subjects, like Nature, but really it could be Trees, so, why not specific trees... Jacaranda, Torrey Pines, Redwoods?

Happy Anniversary, Chickenblog. Chicken Blog. ChickenBlog. Chciekneblog. However it's spelled, however many labels there are, I find a lot to be thankful for in the years, the memories, the friendships and other gifts you have brought us.

With Infinity More Monkeys, a picture a day.
