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.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

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
