Heavy Petal: Gardening Blog from the West Coast
I got word about this blog from Delightful Blogs called Heavy Petal (such a cute name!). Here’s some information, fresh from the blogger herself:

“Heavy Petal is the blog of Andrea Bellamy, a garden writer based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (Zone 8B). Andrea has written for Gardens West and Garden Wise magazines. She enjoys growing unusual edibles and performing acts of guerilla gardening. She is a community gardening activist and aspiring garden designer. She gardens because it feels good.

Heavy Petal?s mission is to demonstrate that gardening isn’t just for the suburban, the aged, or the hopelessly unfashionable. Rejecting horticultural snobbery along with plastic swan garden planters, Heavy Petal is gardening ? from an urban, organic perspective.”

    hi holly,

    we just added your blog to the Delightfulblogs directory. As huge fans of OhJoy we naturally fell in immediate love with yours! Is it possible to share with your readers that if they have a blog they can add it for free at Delightfulblogs?

    We found that it was almost impossible to find great blogs which is why we launched the delightfulblogs directory.
