Garden bloggers tell their stories

– Posted in: Recommended Links

This past September, Stuart Robinson of Gardening Tips ‘n’ Ideas interviewed several garden bloggers to find out what got them started. Just in case you are as far behind in your reading as I am, the intro is here, and you can easily follow the links at the top of each post to find the rest. Since I am a nosy–er, curious, person, I was very glad to learn a bit more about some of my favorite writers, and to be introduced to a few I didn’t know.

And I think Stuart was a smart cookie to find a way to keep his blog going during his vacation by promoting a sense of community among garden bloggers. Kudos!

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.

Shucks ladies!! What lovely things to say.

I too enjoyed your series on the “Pioneering Bloggers”, Kathy. It was great to read of those who have forged a little of the gardening blogosphere that we can all enjoy and to hear a little of the history of some of these esteemed gardeners and bloggers.

Kudos back at ya.

Stuart is lots of fun. He does some interesting things with his blog. Never a dull moment! I too thought it was neat to learn more about some fellow gardeners.
