Autumnal Honor and Surprise
I offer you this plate of Louisiana satsumas in humble gratitude. I was so shocked to find out that Horticulture magazine has included my blog in their list of their favorite top 20 garden blogs. There are some great blogs on the list that I'm already familiar with, and some new ones to me that I want to visit. They can all be found by clicking through from the Horticulture store website or right here. Some of my favorites are not listed, which surprises me. But I guess it really shouldn't as we all have certain ideas about what we want to see in a garden blog. And a list is just a list; you can't list them all! You can see some of my favorites in the sidebar on the right.
What really amazes me about this honor is that I think Horticulture was the first garden magazine I subscribed to, probably a couple of decades ago. (Although I'd been gardening before that, I couldn't afford any magazine subscriptions til then!) Who would have thought that my initial forays into gardening (with the magazine's help) would eventually lead to me journaling my gardening thoughts in cyberspace? Amazing.
