Pretty picture: Gazania 'Tiger Mix'

This is already post #200, since I started the blog, for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing. So let's celebrate with some Gazanias. This seems like a Gazania kind of moment.

Total word count for the blog: approximately 145,000.

55.5 plant profiles (the 1/2 being for the temporarily-incomplete Dieffenbachia profile).

Average daily output: about 750 words per day.

Total number of photos: Blogger tells me only about 600. Which I guess is still averaging 3 pictures per post, so it could be right. It seemed like more, somehow.

I know this isn't maybe a huge deal for you, and 200 is a weird number to get excited about, but I'm kind of making up for lost milestones: I didn't notice 100 until it was well past.

Wow, what gorgeous flowers! I especially love the 1st, 3rd and 5th ones. I’m not sure I’ve noticed these plants at the local greenhouses in the spring.

Congratulations on your 200th post! It really is worth a celebration, sooooo to commemorate the moment I think a trip to the greenhouse for the purchase of a new plant (or 2 or three) is in order...for me. Hey, I’m just trying to share in the happiness :) And although I realize that it’s a “Gazania kind of moment”, unfortunately I don’t have an outdoor garden to join in on that fun. So I’ll have to make the sacrifice and make it a “houseplant moment”; anything to show support for my favourite blog…

So when’s the party? And is there cake involved? Balloons? How about some plant cuttings?

Er, uh, I'm not sure when the party would be, but I know it's not going to be during May or June.
