Hidden Hills Garden blog

I'd like to introduce you to a new Alabama garden blog called "Hidden Hills Garden". Peggy Hill, who lives on Smith Lake, is a writer for Alabama Gardener and Smith Lake Living magazines. On her blog she describes herself as "a full time, garden obsessed, crazy gardener" and I was pleased when I read that when she watches tv, she is more interested in what is going on in the landscape than with the characters. I thought I was the only crazy person who did this! I had the pleasure of meeting Peggy last week when she and her garden group came to visit my garden. She has a post about their visit and she will be writing about Maria Wall's garden on her next entry. I hope you will take a look at her blog, I think you will enjoy it!

  1. I just popped over to read her post about your garden. I loved seeing someone else's view of your garden. I have been reading your blog for a long time and she showed me things I have never seen. What fun. Don't you think it is fun to see what catches the eye of the beholder? It makes one look at their own garden in a new way.

  2. I just saw your last post and your garden is looking beautiful! And everything is so nice and green. Have a good day in the garden....Julian

  3. funny you should say that about watching tv. I'll often try to figure out where something is filmed just by looking at the plant material. I guess we have issues. lol.

  4. I tried to leave them a message, but got a message I had to log on and it kept saying my wordpress id was valid (also did it on yours). Nice blog.

    I thought I was the only one who has HGTV #1 on favorites list. My Japanese iris have started blooming. Several blooming for the first time. Daylilies are popping open everywhere. Mary

  5. I really enjoyed meeting you and touring your fabulous garden. Thank you very much for the lovely introduction!
