I do this now and again, describe other blogs and why I like them. Philip’s blog, for example, I highlighted earlier – well written and special in every way with his own super high quality photo’s and poetic style, Phillip makes wonderful reading. It’s hard to say enough good things about the good-natured, uplifting and very literate Phillip.
The pictures here I have lifted from my next featured blogger’s site – hopefully with his kind permission.
Today, I want to explore – with you – a Danish friend of mine who specializes in roses. Niels Plougmann is yet another good natured chap with an astounding focus and breadth of knowledge about roses. Already, I have learned oodles not only relating to the various species of this stunning bloom but also to accurate renditions of climatic possibilities of the various sub species. As well, Niels fully covers more mundane concerns like favorable or unfavorable soil conditions, growing habits and the blooming frequency for the featured families. Naturally, Niels also combines advice on the care, feeding and overall maintenance of the West’s most emblematic flower – the Rose. Rosicrucians unite – here we come!
Recently Niels took a break from posting and I missed him. I spent time at his site, looking around for him and left a note or two, urging him to come back, healthy and wise as ever. Obviously my imploring worked, because Niels is back in action and as frisky as ever! This is a good thing. I take full credit for getting Niels back into the robust world of educating us morons about his favorite plant. We are in his movie!
Honestly, give yourself a treat and visit this marvelously informative and enthusiastic garden designer. Good natured to a fault and informative beyond measure, Niels offers that rarest of things – great insight with a true human sensibility. The world could use a few more of this guy.
