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.

Kathy- thanks so much for this-your kind words are much appreciated.

Bill-thanks, re-the transparency…I was sort of envisioning the banner and sidebar buttons as rusty ironwork-like old gates you can see through.

Oh yes, I agree. Very nice.

I like having the transparency in the banner as well as in all the columns.
