Welcome to My Garden
“The gardener cultivates wildness, but he does so carefully and respectfully, in full recognition of its mystery.”
― Michael Pollan, Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education
Welcome to the Eden Condensed blog! So, finally three years after founding Eden Condensed and writing for various other blogs and publications, I’ve decided to work in my own garden as it were, to “cultivate wildness”, and launch my own blog. I think I have hesitated in starting a blog in the past because as much as gardening is my passion and my calling, I don’t always want to write about gardening. I find so many topics fascinating, and my observations of the world don’t always focus on plants.
So what will this blog be about? Well, first and foremost, it will be about gardening: garden design, planting tips, garden successes and failures, lessons learned from my favorite garden designers and clients, and lots of beautiful pictures. It will also be about my life in and about Los Angeles, my chickens, my cats and dog, my kids and husband, small business, art, travel, cocktails, and whatever else fascinates me, pisses me off, or makes me laugh.
I hope you will join me on this adventure, comment frequently, share generously, and above all: Enjoy your garden!
