Who me, Rant?

I try to be good, just like my mother raised me. But sometimes I just can’t help myself. A couple of days ago, The Wall Street Journal printed an article that really annoyed me. So I had myself a good rant. Only, I didn’t publish it here. I became a “guest ranter” at Garden Rant.

If you’ve never visited Garden Rant, it’s a blog written by three gardening women who carry on, clamor, cry, declaim, fume, harangue, pop off, rage, rail, rave, scold, sound off, and yes, rant–usually with good humor, but always with an important point:

Gardening MATTERS.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
