Why “Garden with Grace”?
In 2009, I blogged for PBS New Hour’s Patchwork Nation project, representing Nashua, NH – a ‘Monied ‘burb’.
Years earlier, I’d learned to blog while I was employee of Sun Microsystems. (It appears that the group blogs – Women@Sun and the DogBlog – where I once contributed to are no longer online since Oracle acquired the company.)
I’ve always enjoyed contributing to a blog, especially in a group effort and decided in 2011 that I needed to start the process again, but this time on my own. I felt the need to blog about topics that are more personal vs. work/career related. So, I picked two things! 1. Gardening 2. My dog, Grace.
The Garden with Grace blog is more than just the name of a pet. There are so many beautiful definitions of Grace.
My favorite is: “disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency.”
Even though Grace, the dog, passed away in late 2012, she is still an inspiration for posts. Whenever I’m in the garden, her presence can still be felt. Feel free to provide your feedback on my stories and share some of your own experiences about how you Garden with Grace (however you define the word!)
