Welcome to my blog! I recently moved back to northern Canada after living in gardening Mecca, England, for 15 years. As the title suggests, I miss my garden. Over the years I've done a lot of reading and thinking as I gardened, and I wanted to pass some of it along. I enjoy the sort of gardening books that are about more than just gardening, whether it be history, science, or just reflections. So I will try to emulate them, which is why there are probably going to be more posts about colour and other factoids rather than how to double-dig. I'll be adding some reviews of books that have influenced me, and I hope you'll be inspired to read some of them.
