Garden Blog Highlights

For some new and inspiring winter garden photographs, check out Country Gardener (http://countrygardener.blogspot.com/2008/02/ice-storm-then-snow-storm.html) and View from Federal Twist (http://federaltwist.blogspot.com/2008/02/my-wet-prairie-in-february-turning.html).

For those of you who love lists of plants, Gardening Tips 'N' Ideas notes "Val Bourne from the UK's Telegraph has boldly gone where no other garden journalist would dare tread - creating her list of the Top 100 Plants Every Garden Should Have" (http://www.gardeningtipsnideas.com/2008/02/100_plants_every_garden_should_have.html).

For fans of living sculptures, Rurality has compiled some amusing photos of mud men and moss maids (http://rurality.blogspot.com/2008/02/of-mud-men-and-moss-maids.html) and Ellis Hollow displays a whimsical cow (http://www.remarc.com/craig/?p=339).

Lastly, for those of you who like to knit when you can't garden, You Grow Girl has a great post on knit vegetables (http://www.yougrowgirl.com/thedirt/2008/01/31/knit-a-beet/).

Thanks for the link HG. I'm guessing, after viewing your front garden pics that you probably did better than my measly 1 of the Top 100 must-have plants!

Thanks for the link! I love your pictures -- your garden is really beautiful.

Hi!! Just checking in to see the beautiful gardens on your sidebar. Sometimes I just sit and stare--do you see me out on your lawn soaking it all in--lol. It's me and I brought my own sweet tea. I have extra if you get thirsty while working.

Stuart,

Yes, I have many of the plants on the list, but there were many I'd like to add too.
