Digging Into Blogging
Welcome friends, to a new Blog – Digging Dakota. This blog is a cheerful, chatty insight into my observations of life in North Dakota, colored by my experiences living and gardening in Tustin, California; Amity, Oregon; Fort Clark, North Dakota; St. Paul, Minnesota; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Williamsburg, Virginia; London, England; Watford, England; Edinburgh, Scotland; Williston, and now Bismarck, North Dakota.
I really am “Digging” Dakota, and am glad to return here after an absence of over 20 years. Not much has changed here over the decades, except for the monumental oil activity in the Williston Basin. Very dramatic indeed. More about that later.
I will be sharing my perspectives on current gardening activities world-wide, through my membership in the national Garden Writers Association which provides me and many other garden writers with access to the newest info, trends and successes of the green industry. As a horticultural and architectural historian, I will also be featuring my insights of past gardening and landscaping trends, successes, and highlighting special characters who greatly influenced our gardening practices today. I will do this through many avenues, including book reviews, interviews, and photography.
Overall, I plan to just have FUN, sharing with you my numerous years of accumulated stories and images, walking with you through the gardens of yesteryear and of tomorrow. Thanks for joining me, and stay tuned! Susan
