Before leaving Utah, I had a pretty lovely little garden I was blessed to call my own. I would spend many hours in it whenever the weather permitted and sometimes when it didn't. It was my haven, my Eden, mine.
Here in Baltimore I don't have that. There is a "green" space next to our rowhouse where grass and groundcovers grow, sort of. The landlord has given me permission to do what I want with it, but with only one sure summer here I don't want to invest any money in it, only to leave it next year.
Here's the thing... Leaving Utah meant leaving my garden and I had decided the easiest thing to do was pack away that part of me until I had a home+garden again. Turns out it doesn't work that way. Being in the dirt, planting, pruning, digging and working is part of who I am. It's in my soul. It feeds my soul. I can't be without it. Now with springtime fast approaching I am itching to talk plants and designs and everything else to do with gardening. So I had the thought: I should start a garden blog! I would post links to resources I use and like. I could post pics (yours and mine) of plants and gardens with details/information. There is so much potential for sharing. What do ya think? It would be a place where we could talk about our ideas, problems and thoughts on gardening or anything else we can tie back to life and growing things. :)
This is my plan for now... I will give it a few days to marinate and come up with a name, meanwhile you guys need to give me something to write about. If you have questions, now's the time to ask them. If you want ideas for designing beds, pots or baskets or if you just want to talk about something else, let me know. I am not an expert but I am passionate about gardening/plants/life and I hope that makes up for anything I may not know. Talk to me!
