Introduction
Blogging is a joy - a total extravagance. Here I can explore endless curiosities in blogs - 5 combine written & image primary sources + narratives looking at women & gardens in early America & beyond. The largest blog "It's About Time" scours history, art, nature, & everyday life for unique perspectives, uncommon grace, & unexpected insights. If you are visiting just for fun - relax & enjoy, there is a little museum in each blog - no travel necessary.
