Garden blog in Florida

– Posted in: Recommended Links

When Elisabeth Donovan of the Miami Herald took note of our blog several weeks ago, she commented that she didn’t know of any Florida gardening blogs. Well, one has come to my attention. The Garden’s Gift is actually a collection of several blogs linked together into a website, and yes, she’s got an RSS feed. (Atom, actually.) Maybe you Texan gardeners can compare notes, ’cause here I am waiting for the snow to melt, and she’s talking about being out in her bathrobe at six in the morning. It’s hard to wrap my mind around the concept, especially when I’ve been debating whether it’s yet warm enough to stop wearing sweatpants under my bathrobe in the house. Welcome to the club, Nancy!

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.
