Has anyone else been reading Toward a green thumb? If so, why didn’t you tell me? I want to know about every gardening blog out there. I collect them. And one day, real soon now, I am going update my Garden Blog page. The archives for this blog go back to September, so while it’s obviously new to me, it’s not brand-new. Looking forward to some new reading material as the windchills drop below zero, and the snow swirls around the flower beds. Discovered via Blogarama.

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.
