Last night I discovered Notes From Zone 4, a real live bona fide cold climate gardening blog, authored by Frank and Lisa Richards of New Hampshire. They started it in November 2000, apparently after rebuilding from a house fire. The design is simple, but pleasing; the writing is straightforward and informative, and there seem to be photos on every page, at least, as many pages as I looked at. With archives going back that far, there’s an awful lot of pages to browse. Sigh. I suppose it’s just as well I didn’t know about this blog sooner; it might have made starting my own blog more intimidating.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
