My Friend’s Garden Project FOTD July 30, 2022

My friend Patty Martin’s decades-long project to single-handedly add to the beauty of her Wyoming town made front-page news yesterday. The flower photos I’ve been posting for the past few weeks are all from her garden both inside and outside her property. Read about her project to beautify the city block behind her home here: (Click on the blue link, not the photo.)

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I enjoyed the “Kentucky Gardens” story both the photos and the story about your friend Patty Martin. Wouldn’t this be a much better world if more people put their efforts into improving it instead of destroying it.. My efforts of keeping my place a wildscape really suffered this year from the terrible heat and a solid blanket of flowers turned into a dry rocky landscape. The result of greed and global warming. But I know that God and Nature will bring it back by next year and hope for better times. I still need to go out and take a photo from the same spot to show what this summer has done..But the terrible results are so sad that it is difficult to even look at much less photographs. SAM

    Fantastic project! We have seen a bit of that here. The entire reconstruction of the old Unitarian church was a private enterprise to save the building and turn it into a special place. Also gardens along the Blackstone are all privately funded and done by people who hope we can make our town a little more “special.” I think it’s working!
