Of the blogs on my sidebar, several were added quite recently. One of those is Dee's Red Dirt Ramblings. She commented recently on one of my Sunday Stroll posts and I, in turn, visited her blog. I knew right away that I would return to her blog again and again. She is a gardener in Oklahoma, and lately has been dedicating her posts to the beautiful daylilies blooming in profusion in her garden. If that were not enough to ensure my return to her blog, her writing style would be. Her writing is informative, engaging and entertaining. You may have noticed her posts on my last couple of Sunday Strolls.
Next on my blogroll is Rue's Peanut Butter and Jelly Life. Rue's blog is full of decorating ideas and home comforts. She and her husband are hopeful that the purchase of a particular old farmhouse is in their near future. I return to her blog often to see how the quest proceeds. As I visit, I am impressed by the sweetness of Rue's spirit, which makes her blog even lovelier than the pretty photos of her home. Reading some blogs is like visiting a friend in her home, and Rue's is definitely a blog of that variety.
One of my favorite garden writers is Sharon Lovejoy. I have mentioned some of her books here in previous posts, particularly Hollyhock Days which includes my favorite lists of names for the full moons of each month. Her blog, Sharon Lovejoy Writes From Sunflower House & a Little Green Island, is filled with the same practical homegrown wisdom that characterizes her books. And like her books, there is a little bit of fairy-magic sown in for good measure.
