Well folks, here we go!


Thanks to Olivia and Family Man for assuring me I could and should do this. They will most likely soon be barraged with my annoying questions about how to accomplish what I want to do, so consider this fair warning, my friends!

The purpose and overall goal of this blog will be to chronicle, on a somewhat regular basis, the progress and look of our own Urban Oasis around our house over the course of the seasons. Obviously, this being almost summer, the most action will be going on in the next few months.

For those friends of mine at Booman Tribune who have encouraged me to start this blog, I ask for your initial patience as I get this thing designed and underway! I have great hopes to turn this into a good resource for gardeners and garden admirers, and hope to establish a fruitful dialogue regarding gardening choices, issues and design. I know a lot already and love to share what I know, but do not in any way pretend to be the expert!

For those who know me already, stay tuned for more of what you see regularly in the FBC/FBL, and for those who don't, I hope you'll like what you see. So feel free to comment on posts and pictures and ask questions! If I know the answer, I'll be happy to provide it, and if I don't some of the folks I know will likely be able to answer.

So, in the immortal words of Shirley Q. Liquor in her classic piece Pre-Flight Checklist, "Sit down, shut up and here we go!!"

Woo hoo! Excellent IVG, Excellent ... What a great b-name too! An Urban Oasis is how I think of your garden. I must say that I'm happy you had such rotten weather this w/e if this is the result LOL. :-)

And as for questions: Ask away ... you can e/m me any time and no question is too silly. Like you mentioned in your post regarding the garden, there is always someone around who can help us figure it out ...

Congrats {{{IVG}}}!

Thx again Olivia! Now I can clutter up this blog with all the photos I don't post in the FBC, lol.

You know, I woke up in the middle of the night and I thought someone had a really good slacking day today. So good, they finally made a blog. :)

Congrats IVG. I'm looking forward to seeing much more of your Urban Oasis.

Hey there Manny... thx for stopping by! I might have to do cute dog blogging too one of these days, but it will never compare to Bud blogging. Loved the new pic you had for Friday!
