The Gardening Blog in the News!

I was so excited when Christine told me that “We are in the Fair Lady Magazine!!” It was such a surprise to the both of us that our “little” blog made it in one of the top woman’s magazines here in South Africa! We are both grinning from ear to ear and had to share this with all our gardening friends!

[one_half_last]The Article on the Gardening Blog![/one_half_last]




And the Article reads:

“Life long friends Barbie and Christine are working moms who both developed a passion for gardening in their 40s. Their busy lives meant the didn’t get to visit each other (or each other’s gardens) as much as they’d like, so they decided to start a blog to share their successes, discoveries, photos and advice with each other.

The result is a warm, chummy blog packed with personality! Of course, you can get information anywhere, but what makes this site shine is the way Barbie and Christine – amateur gardeners, just like us – engage readers in their daily gardening lives, with beautiful photos to match. They also encourage readers to share their gardening successes and advice.

Visit to catch up with them.

Look out for Barbie’s fabulous “1 Minute Tips” videos.”

I think it is just great that we managed to put together a blog worthy of being mentioned in the FAIR LADY!

Happy gardening everyone! xxxxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Hi Christine, this is a question unrelated to this blog post – but you posted in 2011 a blog on your new bird feeder (a bottle with red colouring). It came up on a google search that I did. I saw one of these earlier this year and thought it would make a great present. Do you know where I could get one? Google is failing me on where I can get one – thanks for your help!

What an incredible achievement! So very proud! Just goes to show, when you love something with all of you the world can’t help but feel it xxx We done beautiful ladies 🙂

Thank you all so much!! It is such an honour and came in time to make me feel REALLY guilty about being so quiet on the blog. Will rectify this weekend 🙂
