I am very pleased to introduce to you our latest contributor. Innes and I “met” through the North American Cottage Garden Society (which no longer exists). I had asked her to be a contributor when I first started my blog, but she wasn’t able to then. Now she has a bit more time and has agreed to share it with us. Innes gardens in the Catskill Mountains of New York.

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.
