Cold Climate Gardening expands to include a website

– Posted in: About this site

Here’s the template I’ve been working on, and the surprise is (in case you didn’t notice) that there is now a website integrated with the weblog, or journal. Let me know how you like it–both the content and the design. Tomorrow’s my 45th birthday, and this was my present to myself. There are still improvements I want to make, and pages I want to add, but next week the weather is supposed to be fine, and I’ve got gardening I want to do.

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.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Thank you Erica and Jennifer. Since both of you publish your own gardening blogs, I feel you both know how much hard work went into the redesign.
