Hello World

P. Allen Smith

Hello world! I’m stepping out into the blogosphere and can’t wait to exchange knowledge, information and enthusiasm over the virtual garden fence with you.

In addition to my plant nerdiness, my blog will also be a venue to discuss good food, sustainable farming, design, art and books, and I can’t wait to share pictures of all the critters on the farm.

To kick start my blogging education I’m meeting up with 24 bloggers from around the country and my home state of Arkansas and a few Garden Home partners for our first Garden2Blog workshop. Over the next two days we’re going to get together for seminars, garden tours and a party or two of course.

Blogging is a new frontier for me and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of fun we can get into!

    Hello Allen,

    Hope you can help me to figure out what type of tree is growing in my front yard. We moved to Virginia a few months ago and this Spring has been full of blooming surprises. BUT, no-one can figure out the name of this tree. It has little bunches of white flowers growing directly from the bark — from the bottom of the trunk to the edges of every branch. No leaves were evident for two weeks – now they’re starting on their own stalks. Very beautiful. Is there a link to attach a picture for you?

    Thanks for starting to blog. I think you’ll have a great time.
