Other Garden Bloggers' Posts.

The talent that most garden bloggers bring to the Web with their cameras,  keyboards, and their souls consistently blows me away. By sheer coincidence, this week, no less than three fellow on-line garden bloggers posted articles that are worthy of special attention and your link-click.

On April 9, 2010, Eileen at Gatsby’s Garden wrote “May I Borrow That View Please”, a short jewel of journalism about the garden next door. Her post gives new appreciation for other people’s plants that grow within view of our own garden. How ingenious of Eileen to discover a specific component of garden designing that is, literally, always before our eyes.

Fran Sorin at Gardening Gone Wild wrote a moving article titled “The Soul of a Garden” on April 10, 2010. In this posting, she reports on a jaw-dropping steep garden made of rock and built by hand, by a garden designer with a haunting past. The awesome rock creation is breathtaking and disturbing, just like it's creator's biography.

At Steve Snedeker’s Landscaping and Gardening Blog, Steve created a great piece of photojournalism on April 8, 2010. Titled “Bernheim Forest - a “Holy Cow” of Springtime Delights”, it is full with ethereal images and beautifully written commentaries on a forest that holds great personal meaning for the author. It is rare to describe a posted garden blog as touching.

Wow, Allan, I can't thank you enough for your kudos! I have written something which may be a little controversial ( I know you can relate to this). Again, thank you for your support!

Thank you for sharing these blog posts with the community. I've just read Fran's "The Soul of a Garden" and really enjoyed the touching story behind the designer and the wonderful photos.
