Ranting gardeners

So I’ve been reading Sign of the Shovel and Garden Rant. I like these women! Yes, yes, yes: “each garden is different” so expert advice is really just a starting place. My brother-in-law is a landscape architect in Seattle. I know he’s very smart and very good at what he does, but his advice just DOES NOT apply to Denver. We’re a mile closer to the sun (which shines 300 days a year here) and it’s dry as a bone. Even so-called “sun-lovers” whither here in July.

And they have a manifesto! What a great word. The Pajama Gardener needs a manifesto. Maybe down with clothes and up with jammies?
