Today marks the 3rd birthday of the Garden Photo of the Day! We started back on January 4th, 2010--more than 770 post ago. Whew! The difference between now and then is that back then this was MY blog, but now it's YOUR blog! I've had such a blast featuring your gardens over the past couple of years, and I'm hoping we can keep it going for several more years.

A few interesting facts: we've featured gardens in 43 U.S. states (still missing AK, HI, AZ, NM, SD, AR, & MS), 4 Canadian provinces, and 18 total countries/continents, including Iran, Spain, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Rwanda, Hungary, Ecuador, Germany, Antarctica, India, Sweden, Antigua, Slovakia, and Romania.

Keeping a daily blog going has been way more work than I anticipated, but super rewarding. You guys are all so nice and helpful. Keep it up, and send me more photos!! That is the key.

As a birthday gift to the GPOD, do me a favor and send the GPOD to a bunch of your friends who might not know about it, and convince them to SIGN UP. The more subscribers I have, the more time I get to spend on the blog, and the cooler it gets.

To celebrate this day, let's take a look back at some of my personal favorite posts (links in the captions), though I could go on and on. You guys are amazing gardeners! Sincere thanks for sharing the results of your labors.
