Just discovered Frog Hollow by following the link on a comment Gabrielle Adams made at Horticultural. Gabrielle’s blog covers a wide range of topics, so for my maiden voyage I chose the Gardening category. Well, you know, any gardener that can actually write about what’s in bloom in the garden in January provokes a twinge (just a tiny, teensy twinge) of envy in this cold climate gardener, who currently looks out her window at an ocean of snow. But that quickly evaporated as I learned that, due to health problems, Gabrielle can’t go outside to garden from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.! Makes my own wrist complaint seem trivial. Besides her passion for gardening, she’s also a connoisseur of children’s lit., and a raiser of bees. If you need (yet another) remedy for cabin fever, look no further. There’s plenty here to stimulate and engage you.
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.
