Black Walnut Dispatch, written by Virginia based gardener and garden designer Mary Gray, is one of the best new garden blogs I’ve come across in a long time. Full of heart and humor, Mary has already started an impressive number of high quality entries, from mocking oversized outdoor kitchens, to a satirical ode to L.L. Bean catalogues, to a moving manifesto about why we garden. The writing sizzles. It is like Garden Rant with a wry sense of humor. I recently subscribed by email so I won't miss a single post. Be sure to check out Black Walnut Dispatch. You will not be disappointed.
