Look, Ma, I’m in print: brief Garden Design mention

I can’t believe I haven’t posted for two weeks. It’s the catch-22 of the blogging gardener: to garden, or to write about gardening. Though I can’t say I’ve done all that much gardening, either. Two birthdays, two family reunions, and a sick and cranky toddler were some of the distracting influences. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you quick, before I go bed–I just learned that this website was mentioned in the July 2003 issue of Garden Design magazine, in a sidebar entitled Tips for Cold Climate Gardeners:

More than ever before, bookstores, web journals, and nurseries serve as information sources for those who live in Zone 4 and lower. See www.coldclimategardening.com, for example.” (p.40)

That’s it. That’s the entire mention, so don’t go buying the magazine just to see it for yourself. If it’s brought any additional traffic to the site, it hasn’t been significant thus far. Hello to any Garden Design readers finding this site for the first time. I’d love to know if you find anything especially helpful. Actually, I’d like to know if anyone has found this site useful.

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.

Thank you for letting me know, Eleanor. Would you happen to be in the Adirondacks? At any rate, you will probably enjoy My Adirondack Gardens if you are in that cold of a climate. Photographs of a beautiful garden and listings of plants that do well for her.

I recently found this site and find it most interesting. I am in zone 3/4 in N.Y.
