And you don't have to have a theme. It just makes things a bit easier :)


This year, my theme for the challenge is:

*** MORE Confetti***

For twenty-six days in April (every day except Sundays) I'll post an alphabetical reference for some of the world's most interesting, familiar, and not so familiar plants. I'm learning a lot going through my old gardening books and herbals and having a great time doing it. I hope you'll join me for my posts and I hope you'll dis cover some fun and curious facts about just a few of the botanical marvels we share our planet with.

I can't WAIT to see what YOU guys are writing about!! Here's to a fun and awesome challenge!! 


PS: for those of you who have been reading my recent posts, the challenge will take over this blog for the entire month of April! I will put my folklore and my prompt posts on hold until after the festivities are over :D Cheers!


  1. I'm sure there are thousands of exotic plants we've never even heard of!

  2. I'm already delighted the Challenge has lead me to your blog - and it's not even April yet! I'm most definitely looking forward to your posts.

  3. Excellent. I'm looking forward to learning more about those plants and herbs, here. I did not participate in the Great Theme Reveal, but I will be participating in the challenge once again this year.

  4. Jen, that's what I love so much about the challenge. I get to learn really cool stuff about a lot of really cool things. good luck to you and your theme!

  5. Alex: I had a hard time narrowing it down to 26...although "Q" and "X" were a challenge!!

    Deborah: Thank you so much! I'll stop by and return the visit!

    Mary: Thanks :) I've had fun looking them up! Now I just have to write the posts!

    Stephen: Thank you! I always learn something new from at least a dozen people during the challenge!

  6. This is a great theme. I've always been fascinated with plants. I like them, I have lots of them in my house, but I'm particularly fascinated with their healing properties... even if I know so little about them.
    I hope you'll touch on this too :-)

    Have a fantastic challenge.

  10. I am sure i will learn something here. I don't really know my plants.

  11. Hi, That's going to be fun, informative and educational. Many lack knowledge about trees and plants. Have an awesome A-Z challenge!

    Best wishes.

  12. When it comes to plants, I'm clueless...
    This should be very informative!
    I'm showcasing blogger books & book there will be loads of giveaways!
    See you around on the A to Z circuit!

  13. Great theme, there must be a lot to choose from :) Good luck!

  14. Sarah: Thanks for stopping by! Oh yes, there will be a bit of medicinal and traditional healing lore included in each of my highlighted plants!

    Natalie: Thanks! I hope you enjoy the Challenge :)

    Megan: Oh you should definitely start a garden, even if it's just a couple of potted plants! It's so rewarding and calming :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Stepheny: Thank you for stopping by! I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of new bloggers this year :)

    Rhonda: Plants are very forgiving and there's so much to learn about them! Start small, learn a little about one plant you love, enjoy that plant and then move on! Trust me, you'll never run out of material to "dig" into :D

    Nilanjana: Thank you! I hope you enjoy the challenge as well :)

    Michelle: Sounds like you've got a lot of fun planned for the Challenge! I'll stop by this morning and check it all out!
