Gardening!

The rewards that one gets from a garden are of various kinds. There are the material products--flowers, vegetables, fruits--to be enjoyed through the several senses, or shared with others and thereby doubly enjoyed. There is the physical benefit and enjoyable recreation to be gained from garden work. There is the pride of ownership of something fine and beautiful, and the inspiration of working hand in hand with nature in creating it. Sometimes there is the thrill of an award or other recognition for something unusually good. Always there is the well-merited satisfaction of having accomplished something that enhances the home and benefits the community.

But these rewards are not to be had for the wishing! The smallest garden no less than the elaborate estate represents the result of the combination of four basic factors or elements: the materials of gardening; the means to gardening; the methods of gardening; and the background of gardening.

There are a number of sources I use for advice on plants, garden structures, design, and when to do what. I have listed and linked below many of the fabulous sources I use, visit, or would like to visit.


I became intrigued by water gardening, and not having room for a pond, I installed a two-barrel water garden; the sound of water flowing from one barrel to the other is quite soothing. And, the birds love it! For water gardening help, visit the following sites. I'm sure you will find something that tickles your fancy!

Now, follow me on what I hope will be a delightful, informative tour of our resources and some of my favorite spots here in the Pacific Northwest, around the country, and on the Web. Walk through some of these gardens, learn, smell, borrow.... (p.s., I wrote the script so a new browser window will open when you click on the link. You should be able to return to this page easily!)

Most of these sites have catalogs, pictures and free gardening tips and information.
