January 31, 2003
Searching for shrub names, I came upon an article by a Minnesota garden writer just back (2002) from a convention in Seattle, which she called home to the highest level of gardening in America. So it’s not just me…

I can’t stop gawking. Did I mention the berries? Red and blue and orange. Spotted this morning: a long-leaved white-flowering vine and some violet vinca, proud rosemary standing six feet tall (why buy it in the grocery for $1.99 a package when you can snip it on the sidewalk?), primroses, pansies, pallid-panicled pampas grass… and snails stuck on bolted cabbage leaves.
