The Sprouts of My Garden, A Sprinkle of Historical Reflection.

3457 Martha in flower garden

With Summer over, Fall gone and Winter now taking over my garden, what a great time for a bit of reflection and introspection. Looking over past posts the other day, I was brought to considering the reasons for creating this blog.

Garden. Plant. Grow. Eat sprouted from my concern with the food that we grow and eat. As mentioned in, From a Meadow, Grew a Garden, my love for plants and gardening began when I was a young child. The miracle of a little shoot growing from a seed, the blades of grass popping up in the lawn and the delicate plant sprouts arriving in the garden every spring, was amazing to me. From there, my respect, fascination and admiration for everything Mother Nature provides for us, grew.

Planting the Seeds, Growing a Garden.

Welcome to the online premier of A Growing Garden. With the start of a fresh new year, I have decided to create another online venue to showcase my garden related knowledge, articles, photography, art, and anything else interesting that may come across the garden path in the New Year.

I hope to use this New Year, in part, to share with you all, my ideas about gardening, landscape design, to even issues such as, the preservation and protection of Canada's precious natural habitats. As our planet is a growing and changing place, gardening for a sustainable future will be another topic of great concern for 2011 blog year. Other topics of discussion will involve the different methods of planting, growing and harvesting vegetables, fruits, berries, and anything else that can be grown under the sun…

Make sure to check back for updates and changes in the New Year, as this will be a Growing Garden.

The best of wishes to all in the upcoming New Year.
