I'm on the newstands!

I had a few days last week when I was checking out the magazine section impatiently waiting for the latest Fine Gardening to hit the stands. But I had a good reason. And then I saw it.
Pondering the magazines

The latest Fine Gardening was on the newstands. And my first national gardening magazine piece was published. See? It's me there.
Hey that's me in Fine Gardening

And it's a whole page.
and that's a full page article in Fine Gardening

I was so flattered when Michelle at Fine Gardening approached me about writing an essay about what I would wish for if a genie granted me three wishes for my garden. Fine Gardening! Totally honored to know an editor at Fine Gardening reads my blog. It was a lot of fun to write and I hope you'll check it out. The illustration that accompanies the story is fantastic.

Ooh! And here's a bonus. I submitted an idea this summer and it's in the magazine too. And the photo is one you my blog readers may recognize.
Bonus piece I gave for Fine Gardening

You never know the path blogging may lead you on. I'm very happy about this path. Have a great weekend.
