I love to garden, and that love has been on hold for several years now (with the exception of a few pots and the Perfect Planter's herbs). But Margaret Roach, former editorial director of Martha Stewart Omnimedia, and owner of the most gorgeous teensy country home and garden in the universe, has inspired me to drastic change. You see, she has given up corporateness (mostly) to garden and write full time. Of course, she has a new blog, featured in the Times today, and it is ridiculously beautiful. So today I'm giving up all aspirations of academia, leaving our condo, and taking over the empty lot across the street. I'll build a small shack, dig a pond, and start planting wild roses. Please come visit me at my new address: 2841 Homeless Garden Place.
