A Way to Garden: the year in pictures

A Way to Garden

Photo credit: Margaret Roach

Margaret Roach is the author of A Way to Garden, one of the most popular - and informative - garden blogs out there.

And one of the loveliest.

Margaret has published a photo gallery of 2010 in her upstate New York garden. It was a year of extremes, she writes: too much snow followed by a too early spring, a too dry summer and a too wet fall.

Margaret gave up a high-pressured life in New York, where she worked for Martha Stewart's enterprises, and retreated to her garden. She has written about that journey in a just-published: "And I Shall Have Some Peace There."

Take a tour of Margaret's garden as it displayed itself during 2010. It is worth your time.

Susan, thanks for sharing the link to Margaret Roach's inspirational blog. The photos are gorgeous. I loved her close-ups of frogs, a brilliant yellow spider (and even a snake), but most of all I loved the beautiful picture she made of deadheaded pansies.
I love the garden in spring, but I also love the fall, when everything reminds us of the cycles in our lives. It's all in the way we look at things.

About Susan Reimer
Susan Reimer has spent 16 years writing about raising kids - among other topics - in her column for The Baltimore Sun. And every time son Joseph or daughter Jessie passed another milestone - driver's license, college, wedding or a move to a new military duty station - she has planted another garden. Now she will be writing about those gardens - and yours - here on Garden Variety.

Susan isn't an expert gardener, but she wasn't an expert mother, either. Both - the kids and the gardens - seem to be doing well in spite of her.

She lives in Annapolis with her husband, Gary Mihoces, who loves to cut his grass but has noticed that there seems to be less of it every time the kids pass another milestone.
