My Confession.

– Posted in: Uncategorized

Well, Ro confessed, so here's my confession, too. Except mine's quite different. I don't really like seed shopping! I consider it a chore. A necessary chore, but a chore nonetheless. So I tend to procrastinate, and put it off, often for longer than I ought. I know this, and I guess in the back of [...]

When is a lawn not a lawn?

– Posted in: Uncategorized

I recently learned that the area around my house that the kids play on is not a lawn but a cropped meadow. Ken Druse, writing in The Passion for Gardening: Inspiration for a Lifetime, describes a cropped meadow as "simply the grasses and non-grass plants (or forbs) that were already there, cut short (and never [...]

I’m Back

I bet you think that my prolonged absence from this blog is because I've been too busy gardening. Wrong. I wish it were true, but what has really kept me away from here, and the garden, is a housekeeping project of Immense Proportions, as Winnie-the-Pooh might say.

Yet another gardening weblog

– Posted in: Uncategorized

After being told my webpage was fourth on the search for "garden blog" (it's actually fifth), I had to check it out for myself and discovered Judi, Judi, Quite Contrary. Judi has several other blogs going as well, which is how I learned she's expecting twins. Strangely enough, I am not even on the first [...]

Totally Unorganized Ramblings

– Posted in: Uncategorized

Someone once commented to my brothers that I was an organized person. My brothers exchanged looks that said "Are you talking about one of MY sisters?" No, I'm not oganized. Sometimes I'm good at planning, or coordinating things, but I am not organized. If I ever had a filing cabinet, I would never waste my [...]
