As some of you know and many of you have probably guessed, Vertie is not my real name. When I told my husband that I had started a gardening blog and that I was using a different name, he asked why.
I told him it was fun to have a nom de plume.
He asked, "Don't you mean nom de bloom?" (Now you see why I married him.)
So at the risk of confounding you and breaking through the fourth wall, here's a video from Central Texas Gardener.
I appear in it, and yet the name Vertie is never uttered.
Thanks, Linda. It was a pleasure to meet and work with you, and the video is wonderful.
