I’m feeling pretty excited. I’ve been asked to become an author for GardenDrum, the much, much bigger gardening blog, with 35 writers, across five different continents, many of whom I have seen on TV or heard on the radio. There I was, writing away on my little blog and an email popped up, just out of the blue. It’s amazing this internet thing!
My blog will continue here as normal – I’ve got hundreds of gardens to show you and many thoughts I’d like to share – but every few weeks, I will also publish on GardenDrum. I can’t post it here too, as Mr Google doesn’t like duplicate text, but I’ll add a photo and a link here to try and tempt you over.
My first article was posted today. I feel it’s great timing to celebrate my six month blog anniversary, which falls on….umm….well….29 February. Which day is that then? I’ll just have to celebrate it early. I’m told that most blogs fold after 3-4 months, so I’m very happy that I’m not stuck for words (only time!) and with six pages of future blog titles lined up (and the fact that I never actually look at this list; I’ve always got something else new and ‘urgent’), I’m not likely to either.
Thanks so much for reading and commenting – I really appreciate your encouragement and support. It has been so much more fun than I expected when I started and it’s the interaction that is best of all.
So, here is my first GardenDrum post, called ‘The Relationship between Nature and Gardens‘. It is the sequel to the Central Coast triology, if that is possible to have. At least, it is the fourth and final post about my trip to Killcare. Here’s the photo to help woo you over; I hope to see you there!
