Oh we are connected at the hip to our computers these days, aren't we? So as I listen to Simply Red "Fairground" on Youtube, I want to share some websites with y'all...........
Who has time to read gardening magazines? Not me ......so when a friend hands me one, I feel guilty and peruse at my own risk. Voila, a great article about a well respected friend in the latest Garden Design. Amy Goldman is a Dutchess County resident when she is not traveling the planet on her crusade to reintroduce heirloom vegetables to the human populus. Her "back 40" is a living museum and you will never meet a more elegant or eloquent person.
Find her in cyberspace at http://www.rareforms.com/
Bulb planting season is winding down. Sometimes it feels like a necessary evil, and then you realize it is the easiest way to get a huge bang for your buck with relatively little effort. Bulbs are clean, light and easy on the pocketbook. So what was I groaning about? ............Still time for tulips and lilies, and (trust me on this one) the bulb connection is Scheepers in Bantam, Conn. http://www.johnscheepers.com/
So while you're driving on the internet highway, Google this.............Planting Fields Arboretum, Chanticleer, Chicago Botanical Garden, House of Flowers, and Piping Rock Orchids.................there that will keep you busy :-)
