“Springs Woman Tends an Amazing Garden and Equally Lush Magazine”

Now here's a "before" picture of the garden in early June. "Before meaning before a summer of distractions, publishing a book, fires and floods, etc. A bit more orderly for Lily's graduation party.

Now here’s a “before” picture of the garden in early June of this year. “Before” meaning before a summer of distractions, working overtime every day, publishing a book, fires and floods, etc. It is often wild and out of control (as seen in the Gazette article) but I wanted to show that it can be more orderly, especially when we’re preparing for a party. This was right before Lily’s high school graduation party.

Yesterday Carol McGraw’s story about Greenwoman Magazine, my gardening life at home, the novel Zera and the Green Man and everything else related to what I’m doing and a lot about the “why” came out in the Gazette here in Colorado Springs.  Carol did a wonderful job–beautiful writing and perfect reporting.

There are a lot of complaints about journalism, and about how reporters “don’t get it right” in interviews (and I’ll admit, it’s an imperfect world) but she nailed it.

I’m grateful to be able to share it with you today. You’ll find the story here.

    HEy! A great read…. You so deserve such a positive, shine the light article! You have worked so hard, Sandra. Must admit, I have been really busy and have not cracked Zera & The Green Man, but I intend to… It is on my desk… somewhere. I see it about once a week, riding the piles of work. I know you know what I mean, eh? Thanks for sending this! And your yard looks great in the photo!
