What kind people garden bloggers are

Many of you will have picked up on, and possibly participated, in Kathryn Hall’s Scarf Iniative project over at Plant Whatever Brings you Joy

For those of you who dont know, Kathryn has been the driving force behind a project to knit and send scarves to young girls in the northern most part of Pakistan.  Garden Bloggers from all over the US and a few of us here in the UK (including me and VP) have participated and Kathryn now has 70 wonderful scarves to send.

I think this is amazing and really shows that there are many kind people in this world who want to do something for those less fortunate than themselves regardless of who they are, what colour their skin is or their beliefs. I am really proud to have been part of this in a small way with my one scarf and am looking forward to Kathryn posting pictures of the girls when they receive their presents.

I live in Malvern, Worcestershire and am a very keen gardener. I started the Patient Gardener Blog in January 2008 as a way of recording what was happening in my garden and connecting with other like-minded people. I started a second blog PatientGardener 365 January 2013 in order to try and post a photo a day to capture what is growing in my garden or places I have visited

  1. Hi Helen – I think what Kathryn’s achieved is heart warming and I’m proud to have been involved albeit in a small way. I’m looking forward to the photos when the scarves arrived.

    Of course, the kindness of garden bloggers is no surprise to me – yours and their marvellous response to my Open Garden speaks volumes. You’ve just managed to say it much better than I can.

    Glad to see you survived the awards cermonies!

  2. If I knew how to knit I would of participated too. It’s a wonderful cause & congrats on the beautiful scarves you all made. Garden Bloggers or should I say Gardeners by nature are generous people. They give of themselves everytime they plant a seed.

  3. Kathryn did such an awesome job on this. I was just tickled to be able to do a small part. Look what happens when we all work together. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
