I love this idea of a small informal group exchange.

Barbara H.

Nice post, Linda, and it sounds like such a nice little group of friends who garden. I wonder if this is an example of the many transformations in living that Covid will bring about without people even realizing that we are perhaps on the edge of great shifts in how we live and think?


I love it! And I'm a little jealous that you have your merry band of four. None of my friends or acquaintences like to garden. It's why I read blogs. Have a wonderful time comparing notes and puzzling out problems, and if you choose to share on your blog, so much the better!

BARBARA — I think you are right. Our Hardy Plant Society is going to hold some outdoor garden tours this summer, but it looks like our fall meetings will still be Zoom. Between aging gardeners, travel distances and Wisconsin weather a lot of us have found that we like Zoom webinars.

ELIZABETH — None of my siblings garden and most of my inlaws don't either; certainly nobody is over the top like me. So it is really nice to have found a group of like-minded women. We are all thrilled with our little group.

That sounds wonderful, Linda. The majority of my friends are not gardeners, even though they periodically buy a plant or two to pop into a pot, or less frequently put in the ground. However, I do have one gung-ho gardener friend who's been hard at work renovating her garden I should visit...


What a great idea, Linda! I've missed in-person time with gardeners, too. My next-door neighbor is really getting into gardening lately, so it's fun to talk plants and gardening with her. I need to get over to Olbrich again one of these days, too...this is one of my favorite times of the year to visit it.

Sounds perfect! The informal group of Portland gardeners that I'm part of has been a huge support system.
