Have you taken walks around the neighborhood and admired other neighbors’ vibrant, colorful groundcovers? Garden blogger Paige Embry has a post on her blog, A Year in Seattle’s Gardens, that explores some of the groundcover in Tangletown through description and photography. Paige explains her gardening know-how and the reason behind the blog:
I used to run a garden design/coaching business and have just set up a blog, www.ayearinseattlegardens.com. The focus of the blog is pretty obvious from the name. It looks at plants not only when they are at their best but also in other seasons (the times when no one takes pictures for gardening magazines) so people really can make an educated decision before buying a plant.
As part of the blog, and just to inform people who are passing by, I’ve put together a self-guided groundcover walk down Keystone Ave N (between 51st and 56th) with some of the groundcovers labeled. Hopefully, I’ll put together different walks every few months that focus on different kinds of plants.
