A British Gardening Blog

– Posted in: Recommended Links

This is probably not the only British gardening blog out there, but it’s one of the few that has a link to my blog, enabling me to find it by looking at my stats. Jane Perrone, a writer for the Guardian, has recently started a blog called Horticultural. C’mon, Jane, as a writer you surely can come up with something a bit more inspiring than that for the name of your blog. Jane is looking for recommendations for a digital camera, so stop by and let her know of any good ones. She’s got a pretty good quote at the top of her blog, too, though in Opera I couldn’t see all of it. I’m looking forward to good reading from this blog. Anyone who was nicknamed “Botany” in school has got to have a few horticultural tricks up her sleeve. Hey–that could be the name of her blog: “My Name is Botany” Yes? No?

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
