The Spirit of the Gardener


Early March Floral Design by


I have a gardening friend in Chapel Hill, NC who writes a blog pbmgarden.  An excellent photographer, she posts beautiful photos, the next best thing to being in her garden. She has become quite a flower arranger in what I think of as a naturalist style…if there is such a thing. She goes into her garden, clippers in hand, with great results. A knowledgable plantswoman, she writes mostly about her garden through the seasons. I have walked a small labyrinth she designed that I wish I could transport into my new garden that is under consideration. 


If you love gardens, appreciate short, but effective blog posts, you will enjoy following this excellent resource for a quick ‘garden fix.’

    I appreciate this great kindness in featuring my blog Stepheny, and do hope to be able to walk a labyrinth in your new garden one day. Best to you, Susie.
