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.

Nice write up on your garden and all it contains. I liked how she wrote about two of your lovely daughters. I would like to visit and meet all of your family someday~~Dee

you’re inspiring another young (or at least new) gardener in the spirit of sharing beloved plants. I’ve heard them called “passalong plants,” and you’re passing along your knowledge and passion, as always! deb
