  1. I would like to subscribe to your blog postings. Can’t figure out how. Can you put me on your list? Thanks!

    • Hi CIndy, thanks so much for your interest in The Lore of the Garden. I am not sure how to sign you up, I just looked around and can’t quite figure it out either. I thinking signing up to follow the blog has to come from you. Here is a link, I hope it’ll help.

      Do you know anyone else who follows The Lore of the Garden? Perhaps they can give you a hand.

      And again, thanks so much,

    • Hi Cindy, apparently I cannot put you on the list, yu have to do it yourself. I did however ask Nan to include your email on her regular list, so she has and until you figure out how to get onto wordpress, you’ll get her writings.
