If you don't know about Gardenista, already (it's the recently launched garden arm of Remodelista), pop in for a visit. I have been checking in for a couple of weeks now: 66 Square Feet is one of the blogs featured on Gardenista's Design Newsstand...So is Margaret Roach's A Way to Garden, Dominique Browning's Slow Life Love, and James Alexander-Sinclair's Blogging from Blackpitts Garden. There are many more. Former New York Times columnist Michelle Slatalla is Gardenista's editor.
On the site there are gardens to see, plants to consider, tools to buy, good looking picnics and deck chairs to peruse. While the content can be described as classy gardening lite, the range of coverage is refreshing and impressive. From a Dorset garden (above), to Babylonstoren (one of the most impressive gardens I've seen, and yes!, an hour out of Cape Town; one quibble, the images are not hi res enough for the size at which they are published), to a Chelsea Garden Show gold medal winner, to how to make rose petal honey, to a Berlin community garden that moves down the block, every year - you are kept moving on a garden-fueled global tour.
Let me know what you think...
