Message from the publisher


Dear Readers, One of the things l love about gardening are the surprises. Last year I planted


several daylilies, and while I didn’t expect to see them flower last summer, one did and I relished in the beauty of that fleeting bloom. Dropped seeds also sprouted and grew; brilliant yellow snapdragons pushed their way through the rocks in front of my porch, a tomatillo from last year popped up in my vegetable garden, and forget me nots I was sure had died off several years ago, appeared and flour- ished in a completely different garden from where they were once planted. Every year it’s the same, some plants for whatever reason, don’t thrive or disap-


point us; they serve as excellent teachers and provide us with lessons for the years to come. But others, against all odds, make it. They are the ones that make you smile at their fortitude, so I say let them stay. When Dorothy asked me to take over as publisher, it was a surprise. The


Gardener publications are synonymous with Dorothy Dobbie, I was just a little seed that had the good fortune to blow into the Pegasus Publications family. Dorothy saw my love of gardening, let me set some roots down and is now giving me the space to grow, and for that I am thankful. I am looking forward to the exciting year we have planned for 2016; I prom-


ise lots of delightful surprises. Please write or email, send in your photos and comments, good or bad, and don’t despair because Dorothy is not abandoning us, she will still be writing and working with me, and answering your questions as well. Enjoy our “Dreaming” issue. I hope it inspires you and provides you with ideas


that you can implement in your home or garden this year. Cheers,
