So in the midst of shuffling my life around, my blog is kind of falling to the wayside. And while I’m sure you all want to know the nitty-gritty details about how I have scheduled all of our utilities here to be turned off Saturday, and the ones in Vermont to be turned on… I don’t want to write about it. I’m living it, it’s stressful and I don’t want to do that here.
SO I had this great idea. I need a regular occurring theme- especially since my life is going to revolve around plants in a week or so- and I’ve decided on “Garden Snippets”. Cute right? I’m going to highlight some great plants for your landscape, patio, kitchen window, coffee table- whatever space you have to incorporate some plant material. My previous post was the first, its a perennial called lantana. I’m not going to regurgitate any wikipedia- available info or botany website facts at you, just a brief mention of the best or in lantana’s case- worst qualities of that plant. My goal is to hopefully encourage you to check out some different plants, or get started on a plant collection!
And while we’re being all plant-nerdy for the moment, the best place to check out color in the winter are indoor botanical gardens. This shot is from Longwood Gardens in PA. It’s A-mazing. Especially for plant-nerdy people like me.
