Rediscovered: Notes from Zone 4

This is what I get for browsing all my blogs from a feed reader (aka aggregator). I had stopped getting feeds from Notes from Zone Four. I did check back every so often, but apparently not often enough. They are now publishing their blog here, in some kind of new venture called gardenporn. They posted the announcement in the template part of their old blog location, so I never saw it in the RSS feed. Just in case the same thing happened to you, now you know where to look. I’m looking forward to catching up. Frank and Lisa are very ambitious gardeners, and they don’t stint on expense. (Or so it seems to me.) It’s always interesting (I’ll stop short of saying “amazing”) to see what they’re up to next.

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.
