House Beautiful Readers, Welcome

– Posted in: About this site

magazine page scanned inCold Climate Gardening has a tiny bit-part in House Beautiful’s June issue. If you happen to subscribe or see a copy for sale, turn to page 40 and check out the top right part of the page. If you don’t manage to get hold of a copy, no worries. It is a shortened version of my post about ‘Lauren’s Grape’ poppy and ‘Dark Towers’ penstemon. If you are a House Beautiful reader and are visiting for the first time because of the photo feature, thank you so much for going to the trouble of typing in the website address. I hope you find a lot of useful information. Don’t be afraid to comment on this or any other post, and click on almost any photo to get a larger version.

That’s just awesome, Kathy, congratulations. I don’t have a house-beautiful, that’s for sure, nor do I have either of these plants–yet. 🙂 You’re such a bad influence on me…

Now THAT is cool, Kathy! Congratulations!

I hope my ‘Lauren’s Grape’ do well for me this year. Last year’s…such teeny tiny things. 🙁
