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.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

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

That is a tough one 🙂 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 🙂
