Don't forget to put the story of my lilac bush.
I love that photo of us, when I see it I am flooded with all the memories of that special day. I remember every second (in detail) of that day.

Hi Kristin,
I loved reading through your gardening stories. I loved the photo of the Queyras Valley of the French Hautes-Alpes. Gorgeous! The story about Monsieur Farjon was so sweet!
I can't wait to begin gardening. I am planting my front field in lavender in April.

With all of these gardening stories I feel one step closer to spring. Last Saturday I went to a class at a local garden shop to learn about the principles of French potager gardens. Now if I just had three acres to design one like all of those chateaus. But les jonquilles are starting to poke their tips through the soil. So nice to see something green again.


Kristin, I am a subscriber to your blog and love the word-a-day arriving in my email. My husband also subscribes.

For the fourth year in a row, we are returning to France this spring. This year, we'll be in Paris for 9 days, then Provence (Aix based) for a week. It seems that April (we usually go in May) there will not be many gardens in bloom in France.

I am an avid gardener. Here in North Carolina, my specialty is deer resistant flower gardening without fences or repellents. So, I'm happy to read about your gardening experiences, too!

Thank you so much for your entertaining and informative stories!

Kristen, I have a wonderful white flower garden in Canada that readers in a canadian gardening magazine voted a few years back as one of their 10 favourites. I had a landscape architect design it - and my late husband and I followed his plan. Of course anyone can plan and plant - but there are centuries of phenomenal experts who have leant their expertise to fabulous gardens around the world. We don't give a child a piano and say - go create your masterpiece, and I think the same analogy holds for creating beautiful gardens. Use the expertise available. It is not that expensive and can save many costly mistakes.

Delightful! I adore the garden section! It brings to mind a favorite garden shop, filled with beautiful sights and treasures. Where while visiting, one just might run into a dear friend…and leave with a smile and a lovely idea or two.
