In between work, catnapping, and my violin lesson I went out for a quick recon mission around garden to see what was growing.The white petunia has bloomed with its first flower, the pansys are amazing with the variety of colours from one species, the mystery weed is growing oddly.If anybody has any clue what it is please comment.
I need to mention Angela who identified my red tree (with the lost tag ha ha) as a Cotinus Coggygria. Last year it had the faint airy flowers that looks smoke like as it is light and fluffy.
Angelas blog post is gardening books to buy: http://sacgardening.blogspot.com/2006/05/note-to-self.html
she identified my smoke bush, thank you Angela.
Yesterday I read Amy Stewarts blogpage about gardening blogs for a magazine article she is writing.Its quite cool actually.An enormous list of blogs has been added to the right hand page.She recommends linking other blogs with links, comments, photos of the good bad and ugly. I wrote before garden blogs can be more honest than magazines because they show the good bad and the ugly...Success and disaster, hopefully with humour.
The link between Angela and Amy Stewart is one of the wishlist books is Amy stewarts book about cut flowers, Flower Confidential. Amy S admits her blog is more commercially linked to her books and articles in magazines and newspapers. How she finds time to garden in between all that i dont know. In down time?
