Tennis Shoes? Flips Flops? Or Do You Garden in Rubber Boots Too?

"Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best."

- Henry Van Dyke

Angela, the author of the Gardening in My Rubber Boots blog, claims this is her gardening motto. And Angela, we think your an amazing gardener and blog writer, which is why on this Blog Recommendation Monday we want you to visit Gardening in My Rubber Boots.

Angela is a gardener living in the Seattle, Washington area, who loves hedges and formal gardens with cottage inspiration. She has a small vegetable garden and 2 hens (Henny Penny and Hazel) and 1 rooster (Brownie). Whats really great about this blog is that Angela blogs about so many different topics, at the top of her page she has the tabs Flower and Garden, Chickens, Veggies, and Garden Tours. So if you are only interested in flowers or stories about her chickens you don't have to sift through a ton of articles in an effort to find what your really looking for.

Two features of Angela's blog we love are her "Wordless Wednesdays" and Book Reviews. On Wednesdays she only posts picture(s) or a video (and a little caption) but how great is that? At work and need a break? Escape for just a second to Angela's garden and look at what new photo she is sharing!

Her book reviews are also very useful, and don't worry, this isn't a commitment to a gardening book club. It is just as it sounds, her review of a gardening book. Good, bad or indifferent, her reviews can save you from that moment you get when your reading a book that just really isn't working and your brain says "Cannot continue! Not enjoying this!"

Whether your passions involve flowers, chickens or vegetables, Gardening in My Rubber Boots is worth taking a look at!
