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.

What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.

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.
