Lilly Pilly

Dawn from As Sweet as Cinnamon has asked the question, What's your Blog Name and Why Did We Choose It?
I started my blog back in January 2008 and my early followers will remember me as Jo in TAS. I didn't give my name alot of thought back then, it said nothing about me other than where I lived. I was so eager to start blogging that the name was probably the last thing I thought of, I just wanted to join in and be a part of the blogoverse.
So jump forward to 2010 and it was time for a change. I wanted to pick a title that was easy to remember and that was Australian. My garden contains many Lilly Pilly shrubs and even when I lived in Queensland Lilly Pillys where our plants of choice, we even had one that was shaped like a xmas tree and we adorned it with lights at xmas time. They're my favourite shrub and I love the name so Lilly Pilly was born.

I remember choosing so many names for my blog that I thought were so clever but they were all unavailable.
My title is a bit long but I will stick with it for the moment.
