Clueless posting about his impatience to get into the garden got me thinking. Its wet, its cold, its dark, its too long until Spring! So what do we do when we're stuck inside? We sit on the internet "oooohing" and "aahhing" at other people's gardens while jotting down ideas and the names of plants to put into your own garden (surely I'm not the only one to have lost several hours doing this!)

Now we know Clueless has a delightful wee blog and I've seen a few others mention they record the seasons of their garden online too. But I started to wonder who else secretly types away their notes never revealing their enthusiasm to the greater public.

So consider this thread (because I couldn't find another one like it) chance to shout out your blog web address so that we can satisfy our cravings for all things garden!

I started a blog here: as somewhere to put my ramblings and sort out ideas in my head as somehow writing things down works much better for me than bouncing ideas as the back of my partners head.

I look forward to your offerings!

great idea Clari - I am a reader not a writer, so will be watching this post with interest !

That's a good idea Clarington. I haven't written mine yet but this may be the incentive.

Apologies most of you are already aware but mine is....

It is a blog based around the development of a family friendly wildlife garden and also includes records and pictures of the wildlife that we have been fortunate to have visit us in the last four years. Also some step by step guides to projects that have been completed.

A good idea for a thread Clari and I shall also be watching (and reading blogs) with interest!

I haven't seen Little-Annes 'vegplotting blog' yet so I'm off to read that now as I need to brush up on my veg gardening!!

Gosh these blogs really make you remember there's such a variety when it comes to gardens!

03/01/2014 at 15:56

What a fantastic Idea Clarington I'm going to read some of these blogs later on today


04/01/2014 at 10:42

There seems to be a problem access 'realmensow' at the moment - I've emailed the blogger to alert him - hopefully it will be sorted soon.

04/01/2014 at 12:39

Cheers James, I've just picked up an email from him apologising - it's a great blog.

04/01/2014 at 20:33

Just read a little bit today and I must say it's and good read Dove

I've also have a look at LadyClarington blog which is also a nice read so well written.

Hopefully I'll have more interesting things to ramble on  about soon Clueless!

I'm a bit puzzled; how come some of the blog addresses work as direct links to click on and others don't?

05/01/2014 at 14:18

Artjak -I'm not sure about others but I posted originally from my phone and it seems it doesn't like to embed a direct link.
