Just a little announcement:
I’m excited to let you know I have another essay appearing in the current issue of Virginia Living magazine!
It was a thrill to work with the kind folks at the magazine again (my fourth essay for them) and as a Virginian, like my parents and theirs, it was especially fun to contribute to a publication I’ve had in my own home over the years.
Below is a link to my piece in the online version of Virginia Living. Check it out, and if you like please comment on their site in the space just below the essay. I’d love to hear your feedback!
Thanks to all those who’ve asked what I’ve been up to lately. Blogging continues to be fun and has proven to be an exciting pathway to some great opportunities.
I’ve included some garden photos (before-ish and after-ish) from the experience.

Great job. This reminds me of the garden I made in Washngton.
Wow! Amazing! Congratulations and thank you for sharing!
Wow! Your garden is just inspiring! I love the way you made the walking path through the garden and the flowers and plants are absolutely beautiful!
Thanks! Lots of work but so much fun!
BEAUTIFUUUL! All you garden makes me think to do right now is to sip a cup of coffee, grab a book, and read. I almost forgot that I am in the Philippines and that, since it’s already about 2:30 AM, I should be sleeping right now. 🙂
Thank you! Now get some sleep! Lol
Beautiful! I love the before and after pictures.
Brilliant writing! You have communicated the essence and feelings of what many, like myself, have also experienced in creating our own garden heavens- and you have done this beautifully. Your photos are delightful too. Many thanks! 😍🥰😘✨
Congratulations! You are a gifted writer. Continue to pursue your passion.
Thanks for that!
A place for birds, bees and butterflies to rest!
They need all the help they can get.
More power to you!
I read your article with envy. My backyard is a bleak affair.
But it doesn’t have to be!
Ah, you’re not familiar with my laziness when it comes to gardening brought in no small measure by Arizona’s oppressive heat. I guess I could get up early but that’s highly unlikely. The one benefit to my messy yard – birds love it.
Yes I have friends in Tucson… I understand what you mean!
Beautiful garden! And congratulations on the magazine article!
I have five acres here in Iowa, quietly surrounded by cornfields and a gravel road. I have often thought about wandering up and into the two acres of woods on our property and carving out a little niche for myself there where I could be one with nature. This post kinda of kicked me in the butt and motivated me. Spring is coming. Now I gotta make some plans…
That sounds like a good time to me! I would love that too!
