Up & Blogging…..

I’ve been meaning to start a blog for over a year.  Procrastination, not normally a problem for me, does rear its ugly head when it comes to new technology.  “Blogs? New?” some of you will be thinking.  For most people, it’s replacing a button on a shirt, weeding or putting photos in an album that is put off.  I liken my computer to my weed whip—a stellar tool, yes, but one that doesn’t inspire me.  Both give me a stiff neck.  However, the computer has given me a way to communicate, share and learn instantaneously, making it a tad more useful than my Stihl FS85.  In fact, my life has been enriched by the relationships that I sustained via my humble hp.  I’ve been motivated by the many fabulous blogs that I’ve come across and I must say—there are some amazingly creative and knowledgeable people out there.  Dare I join their blogging ranks?  As you’ll soon see if you follow my posts, I am pathetically easy to distract and it seems everyday something new catches my interest and has me reading, crafting, questioning.  Since I write The Perennial Bookworm book review for the Washington State Nursery & Landscape Association (WSNLA), expect book reviews related to horticulture, landscape design and the natural sciences—including books for kids.  I am passionate about insects, funky crafts and vintage home décor. And of course, being a Certified Professional Horticulturist (CPH) and freelance writer, anticipate I’ll be talking plants and all things garden related.  Please join me.

P.S. Thanks Katy!
