The Passionate Gardener Needs to Soar

Last autumn, the editor of the book review site and some of the readers of my reviews, had suggested that I write a blog about gardening. They believe that I have a voice. That was a very kind complement to pay to someone who never professed to be a writer.

I am a private person.  I trust that you will not be disappointed if I do not share with you the minutiae of my daily life. Instead, I hope that you will come to know me through my writing and I will always be happy to answer all of your inquiries.

Most gardeners love to share their experiences, their knowledge, and even their plants, with anyone who will take an interest. Gardening is a hobby that inspires creativity, passion and enthusiasm. These attributes are not easily bottled up. The passionate gardener needs to soar. So, feel free to ask me anything.

If you have already read my opening blog titled “Why I Garden”, you may have come to understand that gardening is a visual experience for me. I garden with my eyes as much as I do with my hands. It’s all about finding the beauty in nature and sharing that beauty with others. Gardening has no meaning for me if I am the only one to appreciate it.

For all of the above reasons, when I search the web, my quest is to find and share with you those images that appear to be out of the ordinary. Perhaps they will inspire you, as well, and take your breath away.
