If you're coming from Blogs of Note

Welcome! Please check out the "Perennial Posts" at the right sidebar. Some of those are my favorite posts over the years. "Least Favorite Plants" is good for a laugh as well as the one on garden objects.

I am happy to include links to your blogs if they are garden-related. Also, check out Garden Rant. That is my group blog, which I share with three well-known garden writers. Lots of fun, and occasionally controversial stuff. (Controversial in the gardening world that is.)

I love your photos! My garden is pretty pathetic this year. What I thought were flowers, turned out to be really weird weed-things.

Lisa said...

I like your posts on roses and the pics. The rose garden I am trying to create currently just looks like a monument to naked sticks and black spot :-(

Ok, Oberon! Whatever. I love my new readers. Please visit again! I can't promise porn or anything but I will try to have more interesting posts (though they will be garden-related).

A Poem:

Gardening God's Way

In the essence of spring,
here are a few seeds for the spirit.

It's time to plant our gardens.

As you plant, may I suggest
the following rules for your gardening pleasure.

Plant three rows of peas:
Peace of mind
Peace of heart
Peace of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
Squash gossip
Squash indifference
Squash grumbling
Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful
Lettuce be kind
Lettuce be obedient
Lettuce really love one another

Don't forget to include turnips:
Turnip for meetings
Turnip for service
Turnip to help one another

To conclude in our garden we must have thyme:
Thyme for God
Thyme for study
Thyme for prayer

Water freely with patience
and cultivate with love.
There is much fruit in this garden
because you reap what you sow.

Enjoy Your Garden God's Way, Amen.

Congratulations on being a blog of note. I don't know anything about gardening, but your blog has an eye-catching title, and the post right below this has a gorgeous photograph of a rose, er, bulb, if that's what one calls the things that roses come out of.

Abby said...

Hello EAL,

I am only one week old, bloggerwise (or-foolish), and feel rather friendless :-)
Found you on my dashboard, all still new and mysterious.You are my first comment.

Your blog looks good for many a read and I wonder if you would be my first link both ways. Please check me out to see if you will like my roses.

From the other comments I gather that your being of note is quite an honour - well done.

susan harris said...

Way to go, E! And don't worry - that Russian guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

Congrats on being a Blog of Note!

Bryan said...

Congrats! This is really good reading. I do have an actual gardening question for you if you have time. I have a large section of pachysandra in my yard. Unfortunately, there is a spot in the center that started dying a few years ago and has gotten bigger every year. Everything above ground looks ok but the roots turned black. Any ideas? Thanks!

EAL said...

Hi Bryan,

I have lots of pachysandra, but I have gradually been replacing it with other shade plants. I would suggest digging up and either replanting with new or dividing and replanting what healthy plants you have and making sure the soil is well-amended with compost and nicely mulched.

Janet said...

yup I found you on blogs of note. i almost got excited about your bits on cold weather gardening. for i live in zone 1, Fairbanks AK
i was going to make asuggestion about your unamed wild rose, is it possibly related to rose hip, that grows wild up here ( like raspberrys)it looks a similar color
