– Posted in: About this site

A big thank you to everyone who voted for Cold Climate Gardening, which was the runner-up in the Best Rural Gardening/Farming Blog category of the Mouse & Trowel garden blog awards. It is a high compliment, and I hope to provide you with more and better in the coming twelve months.

Congratulations to Kylee of Our Little Acre, who won in this category and in many others.

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.

Congratulations! I’m fixing up my mom’s garden in a cold climate while she recovers from a mastectomy, and I’ve found myself coming back to your blog over and over. I have a container garden in California. Thank you for the great posts!
