- Sunday salvia. Most salvias I grow and love (maybe 7 - 10 species) thrive in the hot (110+ F), very dry summers. Not so this one: Salvia semiatrara who sulks along all summer, inconspicuous and dismissive even. But now, now she offers out a lovely burst of color in these cool gray days - just outside my office window. A January surprise for which I’m grateful... the color saturated bracts persist for month. The deeply purple blooms call in the hummingbirds and little bewick’s wrens - who’ve been popping in all morning to pay her a winter’s day visit and get a drink in return. #salvia #salvere #mygardenmakesmeabetterperson

- This week on Cultivating Place our next in the occasional series of Dispatches from the Home Garden - this time through the lens of a regional newspaper's gardening columnist. Every region needs a paper and at least 1 regionally knowledgeable gardening columnist - Laura Christman was that person in Redding, California for the many years of her long career. Shes an avid home Gardener with a great sense of humor be in our conversation we explore the meaning of gardening through this particular lens of shared stories in a given time and place. She writes: "Perhaps you are familiar with the term "gardening." It is a tangle of weirdness. Turns out there's more to it than growing a lovely lawn or prolific pepper plant." The book "Planet Pomegranate" is a collection of columns written by Laura for the Home & Garden section of the Record Searchlight, the daily newspaper in Redding, California. The pieces are a mix of conversations, observation, reflections and frustrations…..and pomegranates. “I like the concept that when you’re gardening, you don’t have to garden like anybody else, you bring your own experiences of the place that shaped you, and the place where you garden and so you’re kind of in your own little world, it’s your own little that you’re creating and it doesn’t have to be like anybody else’s world. And so if I had my own world it would be Planet Pomegranate because I love the fruit, pomegranate is such a great fruit to grow and they taste great, but I just love that they are this inconvenient fruit that it takes time to eat and you can’t multitask when you’re eating one. You have to devote your full attention to that. ” Laura Christman, Gardener, Garden Journalist.

- Fabulous flowers and photo by Sarah Statham @simplybyarrangement. If you listened to her story on Cultivating Place last week (direct link in bio👍), you know what a warm voice and soul she is. While I love her floral eye, it’s her warmth and as I mention in the podcast, her nature as an encourager in this world, that drew me. Hard to believe she was a criminal lawyer in a past life, right?She said this: “It’s great to think that you’re growing something that’s going to end up as a very special part of someone else’s day….And I do like to think as well that some of these couples who’ve got their own gardens will actually then be growing some of these flowers and using them themselves for years to come.” And for some reason the dreams and hope inherent in this sentiment have stuck with me. Cause in many ways, that’s what plant folk do - they plant future beauty and stories whose ends they can’t know, but they can hope for. Every seed or dormant practical, edible, beautiful, flowering plant is waiting for their part in a future narrative - a wedding, a funeral, a bird-song morning, a dark winter afternoon’s flash of delight across an Instagram feed that brings me a smile thousands of miles from where it started as a seed in the warming soil of someone else’s hard working garden and creative intention. I like that. I think you’ll like Sarah’s IG feed, and her story. Take a listen. Happy Wednesday! #cultivatingplace #thehumanimpulsetogarden #naturalhistory #floranthropist #weareplacemakers #growwhatyoulove

- Twelfth Night. Christmas is down both inside and out, leaving room for January to settle in with its spare quiet embrace. As a girl I was told by my mother that if all the Christmas decorations were not tidied up and put away by epiphany, then the “bad spirits” (my sister says it was goblins?) would visit. Not sure who or what those bad spirits were 🤔, but having the richness of the holiday season cleared and put away till next year is akin to a deep cleansing breath. Welcome winter, for exactly who you are now. A gray rainy day and night, and these offerings gathered from the garden. Happy Twelfth Night! #wintergarden #favoritechristmaspresentvase #kumquatsandhellebores #scentedpelargoniumandwhiteroses #twelfthnight #goodluck #prosperity #gratitude #abundanceintheseason #simplicity

- The adobe-walled, latilla-roofed, dirt-floored garden tool walkway at Georgia O’Keeffe’s Abiquiú, NM garden. A hushed space of light and sanctuary, practicality and beauty. An interstitial space between an enclosed private patio and the open air, expansive walled vegetable garden. A #gardenchurch space. Thank you to everyone who listened and sent positive and powerful comments about last week’s end of year - Visionary Garden - episode with Pita Lopez of the @okeeffemuseum and her long history with these gardens. If you missed it, the link is in bio ☝🏼. It was fun to end the year with this garden and artist. 2018 already has some great gardening and nature loving voices and stories queued up! Thank you all for your subscribing, your listening and your loving support. 2017 was a great journey shared with you all. #mygardenmakesmeabetterperson #visionarygarden #gardeningmatters #gardenersmaketheworldabetterplace 📷 by me, standing there, drinking in the sunshine on a cold November day. 🙏

- Sometimes you have to wrestle - kindly - with a thing before you can get it sorted: an idea, a feeling, a relationship, a year’s end. But when you get to the end of the wrestling, you both feel so much better, lighter, more clear. There’s little I like more than a well-pruned vine and raked gravel surface. And look, I found my path again! The New Year can come anytime she’s ready. 🎊🙏✨ #cultivatingplace #gardeninglife #gardeningmatters #mygardenmakesmeabetterperson
