I kid you not. WiseAcre Gardens: An Unusual Site Planted by a Blooming Looneytic is the name of the website. Half gardening website, half homage to Looney Tunes cartoons, the design of this site is a bit too–er, busy for my taste. Nevertheless, located north of the Adirondacks, the owner of this site has some solid horticultural information to share. And, if you happen to live in the North Country of New York State yourself, and need some rock work done, you may have found your man. The photos of gardens where he has installed stone walls, patios, and paths look great.

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.
