Wow! I just checked out the best designed blog I’ve ever seen! Minnesota Gardener is beautifully laid out, just gorgeous. Regrettably, it is not devoted to gardening, because as author Lauri Mueller explains, “when I bought the url my intention was to make it a true gardening site with tons of info and shopping, etc. but it became clear I couldn’t afford to license or create enough content to make it worthwhile.” Too bad, because the gardening info that she does provide is interesting and timely. I found a link to Minnesota Master Gardeners’ Top 25 Plants for Ornamental Gardens, which is good for even the seasoned gardener to review (you never know when you’ll discover you missed something) and excellent for anyone who is new to gardening where all the gardeners are strong, and all the flowers are above average (with apologies to Garrison Keillor).

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
