I have decided to take a little survey to find out what all of you like to see or read about in a garden blog. I have some specific likes and dislikes, but others may have different ideas. Here are some of mine:
1. I like pictures. A garden blog without pictures is like a hot fudge sundae sans the hot fudge. If you are really hungry for ice cream it might tempt you, but on most occasions you will pass it up.
2. And about those pictures – I like to see landscape pictures, the full view of a border, rather than close ups of flowers. An occasional close up is nice to show the detail of a flower you are talking about. But what I really enjoy is seeing what you have planted next to each other, the shape and size of the full border, where it is located in your landscape, etc.
3. I like to see container plants because I am always looking for ideas for unique containers or creative combinations of plant material.
I think the main reason we read these blogs is to gain ideas for our own gardens (quilts, decorating, etc). Often looking at someone’s work will spark an idea of my own that will turn out to look nothing like the author’s. But had I not read that blog, I would never have created that particular work.
So if any of you would like to share your thoughts, please click the comment line below. I would be quite interested to hear what you have to say.
