Should I stay or should I go?

3 Nov

I haven’t been posting to this site for the past year even though I do have more flowers to add.

There aren’t ever any comments to any of the posts, so I am thinking of taking this site of the web completely.


If you want this website to stay on the internet, please leave a comment-

Let me know why you came and did you find what you were looking for?

Were you just looking at the pretty pictures?

Was the site helpful at all?

Or just say Hi!

Please leave a comment and let me know you are here – and if I should spend the time to continue on.

If I don’t get at least 10 comments by the end of the year, I may just abandon the site and take it down.

    Hi, I’m a Texas native, but was transplanted to S. W. Florida for 10 years, uprooted again 5 years ago to come back home. When we got back I found your site & instantly fell in love, because I was so ‘homesick’ for Florida. I can’t begin to tell you what Florida meant to my husband and I, but I lost him last week, so not to guilt you into anything, but I really dont want to lose you too. Though I completely understand your reasonings. I internalize too much, & dont reach out on internet very often, but I felt compelled to tell you these things. Health & happiness to you & yours. Love, Terressa

      Thanks Terressa,
      It is good to hear from & get to know you. It’s nice to know that someone is enjoying the photos of our Florida wildflowers. Sorry to hear about your husband, but am glad my photos have helped you. I do have another blog about traveling and painting in Florida. You might enjoy it:

    please stay….I would much rather read your posts than all of the political trash

    • FlaScenics November 5, 2015 at 5:37 pm #

      Thank you Susan!

    Never give up. Never surrender! 😉 My experience is that gardening folk are quiet unless you ask a question in your post. Here you have asked for involvement. What kind of interaction would you most like to see, from whom and how do you make that happen? I enjoy your site. Good luck!

    • FlaScenics November 6, 2015 at 9:36 am #

      Thanks Julie,
      You pose some good questions. I am not looking for long dialogues, I just want to be sure I am reaching real people!

    I think it is annoying people to have to log in to make a comment. I do have a garden blog and have never had a spam comment. Today, I was just searching around to find more Florida blogs and saw you on ‘Hoe and Shovel’. Yes, I would come back to browse, but I wouldn’t take the time to comment. Most of the blogs I visit are using ‘’, and after you comment one time it remembers you. Good luck, you have a very nice blog.

      Thanks Janice for the comments.

    Sharon, Just found your site as I was research Rouge plants. Great work. I think having a gallery of photos organized by color would be helpful. Then if those images are selected they can open the page with the additional content. Let me know if you’d like some help.

    • FlaScenics December 27, 2015 at 7:10 pm #

      Thank you Dwayne, there is a list by color, if you click on the tab at top that says plant list. The blog format doesn’t really allow for a gallery to be set up the way you suggest.

      I have decided to retire this blog at the end of the year. Maybe it will come back as a website of some sort, only time will tell.
      Thanks for visiting!

    Please don’t ever take down this site. I ran across it recently while starting my own blog and really enjoy it. Your blog is a great resource for our wonderful Florida natives and I’m sure it inspires others like me.

    Would you ever consider selling it to someone else to manage? I don’t know how that would work but maybe it can live on if you decide to move on… Anyways, thanks for a great blog!

      Thanks Cody,
      but I’m pretty much decided to take it down, just haven’t had time…

    We moved to FL 1 1/2 years ago and I found your site while trying to identify unknown flowers. Please continue to share.

    Enjoyed the site, was looking to identify some of the wild flowers we have blooming here on the ridge and your site was most helpful thanks Ernie

    • FlaScenics March 29, 2016 at 10:44 pm #

      Thank you Ernest, glad I was able to help!

    I’m a little late, but I just found this site. I love this site! It has helped me to identify some plants.

    • FlaScenics July 12, 2016 at 8:02 pm #

      thank you Cindy! I appreciate the comment and am glad you were able to make some ID’s:-)

    I just discovered your blog. I have just moved to Central Florida and trying to make a list of native plants I’d like to have in our yard. I hope you leave your site up so that I can others can return to enjoy your beautiful photos and learn more from your posts.

    • FlaScenics February 16, 2017 at 6:16 pm #

      Thank you Gina. I am glad you find it useful!
