Progressive Newspaper

Okay, I have my own definition of progressive. A progressive newspaper in my book is one that has five garden columnists and has RSS feeds available for their site. Unfortunately, the garden columnists are bundled in with the rest of the Lifestyles section, so there would be a lot of non-gardening stuff in there. Yep, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is definitely a progressive newspaper in my book.

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.
