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 canโ€™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.

Yes, and I have nominated KP about 40 times for every category!

That is a tough one ๐Ÿ™‚ There are quite a few bloggers out there who satisfy both, I think.

Colleen, I’ve always been disappointed that the Webbie Award creators didn’t see fit to give Gardening its own category, so I’m glad to see you’ve picked up the slack. I plan on considering my nominations very carefully. Hmm . . . who would I want for a gardening neighbor, the nicest blogger or the one with the best plants to swap with?

Kathy, thank you for plugging the Mouse & Trowels. Yours is such a highly respected blog, I’m sure you’ll generate plenty of interest for the awards. I’m looking forward to seeing your nominations!!

Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚
