Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

You Can Fly!

Do you read my blog or that of my blogging buddy Peter The Outlaw Gardener and sometimes wonder how to start a blog of your own? Do you take pictures of your garden in order to keep track of what's happening there? Or of gardens that you visit, maybe as part of the NPA's Open Gardens scheme? Maybe you even share them with family and friends occasionally, by emails, or on Facebook or Instagram.

Are you an introvert who's more comfortable around plants, tongue-tied when talking about your garden in front of others, who becomes more eloquent when given time to think and write out what you want to say?

You could write a blog!

Peter The Outlaw Gardener and I are going to be telling all our blog writing secrets and teaching a class for the Northwest Perennial Alliance on starting a blog. You should come and learn as much as you can, so you can start your own blog and join the garden blogging community.

Find out all the details here. Be sprinkled with our very own pixie dust. Become a high-flying garden blogger like Peter and I.

Peter Pan "You Can Fly"


  1. Okay Tinkerbell, you're bringing the pixie dust, right? Is that you in the mouth of the kitten in your sidebar?

  2. I clicked through and read the official blurb, how fabulous! You guys aren't just talking about it, you're showing them how to do it. I hope you have a lot of fun.

  3. That wonderful! I wish I could be there, seated in the front row.

  4. You and Outlaw make it look easy.

  5. Your class description sounds great! I hope you get a big turn out and create lots more garden bloggers.

  6. Wish I could be there! Sounds like a lot of fun - you and Peter are a great combination.

  7. Yes, I'm an introvert who's more comfortable around plants, yes, I read your blog and Peter's too. How did I miss this post is not clear. Maybe it's because I was 10,000 miles away from home.
    I just found out about your seminar and unfortunately my weekend is already planned out. Not that I would start blogging, but I'd love to stop by and say hello: catch two birds with one stone.
    Oh, by the way, the red asian lilies you gave me started growing! I'm thrilled!


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
