I've finally updated my sidebar to provide a place to link to other gardening related blogs. If you would like me to provide a link to your blog, drop me a comment with the url.

I always appreciate and am pleased when someone adds a link to my blog from theirs, so I decided it was high time I reciprocated.

FYI, this is a close up of Sedum 'Autumn Joy' starting to bloom, which signals to me that we are entering late summer. How can that be? I'm just starting to get tomatoes and am still waiting for my first ear of corn!

Happy Gardening (and Blogging).

Thank goodness I am not the only one who has late crops. Everyone keeps showing all the veggies from their garden, and I am going to harvest my first tomato today! That’s the price I pay for living in the mountains.

Hi Carol,

I just started a new garden blog, and I'm having trouble getting people to my site. If you would like to link to my site,, I would very much appreciate it. My garden is in Minnesota, and I'm still waiting for some warm spring weather to hit!
I love keeping up with your blog; always watching for a new post!
Best wishes,

Hi Carol,

Clever title of Blog. Having a relative by the name of May I assumed you were May. However after reading your title - how could I not link to you? My favourite month of the year is May too.

I would be delighted if you would like to exchange links with me.

I have been regularly posting since November 2006 about my Scottish garden with it's visiting birds.

In May I have some of my favourite plants in flower and am hoping that we will also have some young Blue Tits in our Camera Nestbox. I look forward to seeing your garden then too.

Best wishes,
Shirley said…
Good Morning Carol,

Hi there,

Hoping you might find room for my (new) blog "Creating Edible Landscape":

I'm in Sonoma County, CA. Surprisingly few people are blogging in Mediterranean climates - and fewer books! - so I thought I'd share my adventures.

Thanks so much for doing what you do!

Carol, I would be honored to have my blog listed among your links. I look forward to GBBD each month - even when I have little to offer during the winter. I'd also be honored if you would consider joining my GOOPs - short for Gardening OOPs - meme on the first of each month. Since you cannot garden without making a mistake or two, we can all share our GOOPs and maybe help others avoid the same. See more at

Hi Carol,
Just wondering why MacGardens never made it to your side bar. Is there a problem with non-blogger entries?
I found you through Rhone Street Gardens blog. I really enjoyed reading The Five Secrets to Achieving Happiness In Your Garden.

My blog site is where I have added a link to your site.

I also have a monthly newsletter at and I was going to add a link about your site and your beautiful story of the Five Secrets. Very Inspiring!

Hi, Carol! I feel like I know you from reading your blog for the past year. Since I retired last June I have had time to not just garden, but read about gardening by following gardening blogs. You are one of my favorites. So, I have decided to jump in and start my own blog and so far have only 2 posts. I have, of course, included your blog on my blogroll and would love for you to consider adding mine.

I live in Bartlett, Tn which is a suburb of Memphis. I love the links to other garden sites. thanks, Beth

I love how you've brought so many gardeners together simply by sharing what's in bloom once a month. It's so much fun to see what's happening in gardens around the country. I'd like to share a bit about my garden in northern Virginia.
