Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom From the Garden by Kathryn Hall. A lovely video trailer about the book.
This is an example of social media success and connections among gardeners and authors. Kathryn Hall’s book is now available at an independent bookstore called Book People. A while back, I helped Kathryn (@KathrynHallPR on twitter) locate a couple of independent books stores that might want to carry her book. Book People, “a community bound by books,” is now one of those places. What a great thing: people connecting in various ways, supporting authors, supporting local independent books stores, sharing the garden. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Seeing that no one is lining up to name a Chrysanthemum after me, I have taken it upon myself to do so: a dark, sassy eye and lovely butter-yellow petals. This flower mocks Autumn with its two-toned attitude, and I adopt it as my own Chrysanthemum ‘Sassy Nancy’ (homage to my twitter feed). So there, Chrysanthemum ‘Jennifer Orange.’
Thank you, Rameshng, the photographer.
Design student Christopher McNicholl has created the TweetingSeat: a picnic bench with its own social media account. It records and posts pictures, live, of all its visitors.
The TweetingSeat uploads images from two different cameras and sends them to the Twitterfeed. One camera is located on the bench, the other is located in a “bird box” like the one above. Cute? Or creepy?
Chris McNicholls explains his design concept here.
