“Pithy, hysterically funny, with poignant news and views of all aspects of the garden world. Don’t miss their Manifesto!”
That’s what Garden Design says about Garden Rant in their March issue. Referring to us as a “national blog,” writer Maureen Gilmer introduces readers of the magazine to the world of garden blogs, and—this is the part we’re excited about—lists Garden Rant as one of six on a “blog roll of honor.”
Needless to say, we are more than thrilled to be recognized by this über-hip periodical—it’s the one with all the chic furniture and cutting-edge gardens from all over the world. (This issue features Bali.) The issue also contains their yearly “100 hot plants” feature and there’s a huge orange gerbera on the cover. Sorry, can’t link to it; their website still has the October/November issue.
It was interesting to check out the other five blogs that were mentioned. I’m a reader of Garden Design Online and knew about the Human Flower Project, but not the others. I look forward to checking in on them often, though; they sound fascinating.
Here are our partners in coolness:
And in another example of how Amy’s book continues to bring attention to Garden Rant, we are also mentioned in the review of Flower Confidential published in yesterday’s Christian Science Monitor.
