Carolina Gardener Magazine March 2013



I'm tickled pink ( no pun intended ) to have my first article on garden design published here in North Carolina.  Isn't that a lovely cover with the gorgeous pink coneflowers ?  It's one of my favorite flowers  .

 Transforming Space and Culture -Creating Inspiring Front Yards is the title of my article and I will reprint it here when next month's issue comes out so that I won't be in conflict with the publisher. Of course if you live in North Carolina you can pick up a copy .

The March issue is outstanding and chock full of some great articles, including one by Nan K. Chase whose home and garden I visited during the Springfling in Asheville last May.

  1. Great Carolyn! I am glad that we can still plant some of the same things with more and more being drought resistant in the Chicago area and heat resistant.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Eileen. The crazy weather we've been having everywhere certainly does make us stop and think about what we can have in our gardens without wasting water.

  6. Congratulations, what an accomplishment. We are planning a raised bed garden on the deck this year. I want a combination of flowers, herb and vegetables right outside my kitchen so they are easy to tend.

  7. Hello Carolyn! It's been a while since I've been here but you've been on my mind of late. Yesterday, I attended a New Hanover County Master Gardener talk in my neighborhood. It was meant to be about all manner of plants that can weather these salty, windy conditions but turned out to be mostly about grass, which isn't my passion. SO, I'm THRILLED to read about your article! I aim to pick up an issue at the earliest convenience. Congratulations!!!
