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.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Nor am I the least surprised. I don’t comment here often and I get too busy to travel around the blogosphere much but I love your blog. Always have. Congratulations, Kathy!

Thank you everyone. I understand that Horticulture’s list was a reflection of the personal preferences of the staff and wasn’t intended to be an objective evaluation of quality (if there could be such a thing). Many excellent blogs were not on that list, and I hope they don’t feel snubbed. I am grateful to have so many faithful readers, even though I don’t publish as consistently or as frequently as I would wish. Thanks for sticking with me!

Well you know I already congratulated you and just actually came by to tell you how good the theme looks. Very nice and it loads fast for me. Every thing is working. Good colors on the eyes.

I want to thank you for participating in Operation Christmas Child. We raised $800 and made 20 boxes for the little kids. . I’ll drop the boxes off on Monday and write about them Tuesday.
