Children's art from my friend's art studio
Isn't it nice to see nature from a child's perspective?
This is the 300th time I've taken a seat in front of my computer and written about my garden.
I think I can answer that question by asking another; Is garden blogging an art form?
I'd like to think so.
We photograph our gardens....and our garden blogs capture the photographer inside us.
Some of us love to craft stories and our garden blogs capture that sense of style and drama in
our writings. Others have a gift for humor and entertain us all until we're ready to fall out of our chairs and onto the floor.
Still others give us a private view inside their gardens and inside their hearts...a view so beautiful we want to visit again and again.
We're happy to see gardens like our own and many others that inspire us with their landscape designs and crazy garden art.
Crazy garden art...I'm lovin' it

Finally, there are the plants themselves. We love to grow these beauties for their colors, their textures, their scents, and for the animals and insects they attract.
Designing a place to hold all these objects of beauty can be just as exciting as the objects themselves.
That, to me, is a fine reason to sit down at a computer and design a garden blog.
But there is still one more reason
Garden blogging is not a one way street like sitting down to read a book.
Instead, there are friendships to be made and garden blogs see.
And to our amazement, there's a gardener behind each one!
When you love doing something, it never seems like work. It seems more like play.
...seems like yesterday when all this started.
Happy Garden Blogging!
