the trench manicure

I’m not sure exactly what has inspired me to start a garden blog as the gardening season comes to a soggy end.  But here it is:  a new beginning here at Champignon, home of Nino, the Pigeon, Audrey and Z.  And I guess it’s home to me too and I’m the one with the trench manicure decorating my paws.

You might know me from another life – I work as a gardener and blogger for a public garden.  But this blog is meant to chronicle my own and will be uncensored.  Take that as fair warning for anyone with delicate sensibilities – I have a mouth when I want to use it and it can be as dirty as my fingernails.

I am often torn and a little tortured by letting myself “out” in my work blog.  I’d rather be tormented by letting too much of myself show in my own garden.  So here I am and will be – as exposed as I ever am when I’m working butt up in my own front garden.  You can slow down as you drive by and take a little sideways peek; you can stop for a chat and what the heck’s that?; or you can speed on with the radio blaring, oblivious.  I’m wicked shy but I hope to meet some of my (blogosphere) neighbors here on my own turf …

  1. Kris: You have a gift for words which should be shared with the world! Perhaps the blog is the best vehicle for sharing that shy part of yourself which will rarely be expressed out loud. I will be a devotee should you go public!

    Layanee, You’re truly the best. Thank you! (I think it’s really hilarious that Karen thought we were family. But it’s true that you give that kind of support.) -kris
