Garden Notes

Gardening may not necessarily the first thing brought to mind by the term “geek”, but, as with any hobby, a bit of scientific curiosity and a desire for deeper understanding can bring gardening into the geek’s domain. This web site is an ongoing project to document what’s going on in my garden.

For some background, I’m new to gardening. My wife and I bought our first house in February 2004 in the South Puget Sound area. After years of apartment living, our new nicely landscaped yard is quite a change. The first flowers started coming up a few weeks after we moved into the house, and each passing day brings a new surprise. Crocus, daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips have sprung from bare ground. Camellias, crabapples, and flowering plums have practically burst with flowers. Azaleas and rhododendrons are getting ready to reveal their colors. The first springtime in a new house can be a magical time.

It’s hard not to get caught up in it all. As I learn about each of the plants growing in my garden, I’ll add new articles to the site. Hopefully someone will find some use of them. Comments and feedback are always welcome.
