SoCal Gardening, “The Art of Gardening in Southern California,” is my latest garden blog discovery, thanks to Ilona. And I’m checking out BlogShares today per her suggestion.

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.

I have to tell you, Kathy, making my way through the BlogShares links was work… so many garden blogs were either slapped up just to take the name ( probably for commrecial purposes) or not updated in forever. It was kind of disappointing. But the gems that are discovered are worth it. I think it is a likely source as something to check on occasion, and the game part of it seems fun.
