I HIT PAYDIRT AT POLLINATORS WELCOME. Gloria's thorough research turned up the following great nature and wildlife-gardening-related blogs:
- Ramblings of a Naturalist features the photos and observations of Patrick Roper of Sedlescombe, East Sussex. Much to my delight, Patrick also has anoother blog about the wildlife that visit his windowbox and yet another blog about his observations of a single square meter in and around his garden. (These confirm my long-held belief that it is possible to be a wildlife-friendly gardener no matter how small your garden is.)
- Sweet Pea Chronicle is about the efforts of "Firefly," a Maine gardener, to create a wildlife-friendly garden.
- The Regent's Park Wildlife Garden is about a community-run wildlife garden in the famous London park.
- Maryland's Windstar Wildlife Institute has a blog that seems to focus on wildlife-friendly gardening.
- The Ojai Garden features a natural community garden in Ojai, California.
- Green My Planet is by San Francisco enviromental consultant and landscape consultant Jennifer Berry.
- Community of the Land is one of the places where professional writer and wildscaping consultant Susan J. Tweit blogs.
- Natural Gardening is by "LKW" of upstate South Carolina.
- Chicago Nature Lady paints watercolors and observes nature in and around you-know where.
Meanwhile, over at Surburban Wildlife Garden, Dawn is the only one of my favorite bloggers who noticed that Don and Lillian Stokes, authors of the ubiquitous bird books, have a blog. Also, though it's not precisely a blog, I'm grateful to this tireless investigator for discovering that GardenWeb has a forum dedicated to wildlife-friendly gardening.
In Toronto, Native Plant Girl recommends the blog of Southern Ontario native-plant gardenener Garden Nerd. And though it's not a blog, I'm grateful to NPG for pointing out that the popular You Grow Girl website has a forum devoted to discussion of gardening with native plants.
And closer to home, Bloomingwriter Jodi DeLong recommends:
- The blog for Blithewold, a 33-acre public garden-arboretum on Narragansett Bay in Bristol, RI. I like all the items about garden wildlife.
- Ontario's Crafty Gardener, with hand-made items for birds.
- Flatbush Gardener, "Adventures in Neo-Victorian, Wild, Shade, Organic and Native Plant Gardening, Garden Design, and Garden Restoration."
- Greenbow, the blog of Lisa, a gardener and bird lover in Indiana.
Finally, sustainable gardening writer Susan Harris maintains a lightly annotated list of blogs at her website. One of these days I'll check them out, for but for now I'm going to content myself with getting to know the blogs already listed.
