Garden Blogger's Death Day: Announcement

Ding, Ding, Ding… bring out your dead!

Due to the awesome response from my fellow plant-killing garden bloggers, I have decided to host Garden Blogger's Death Day on the last day of every month. It's the perfect time to confess your gardening sins for the month and come clean as to what fell victim to your wrath. Instead of gardening blogs filled with gorgeous blooms and fat, healthy vegetables, this is your time to expose the dead and dying withered messes that breathed their last breath under your care.

As a relatively new gardener who's light on skills, but heavy on dead plants, it makes me feel better to see some of the seasoned pro's unveiling their garden corpses instead of just reveling in their mad gardening skills. It's a big fat case of "misery loves company" in the garden.

If you'd like to join me in Garden Blogger's Death Day, come back here on the last day of the month and leave a comment as to what kicked the bucket in your garden that month. Feel free to put a link to your blog so we can visit it and see pictures of the plants that bought the farm, became one with the compost heap, and crossed to the great gardening beyond.

Hope to see you all on June 30th!! Sadly, I already have plenty to contribute…as always. Here's a free button if you'd like to use one.

This is such a great idea! I'll be sure to join in. I love to learn from others and if I can help someone avoid a pitfall through my negligence- even better! I'll be sure to see you on the 30th! Thanks for hosting this :)
