Laura is full of ideas and information for gardening and landscaping! She posts pictures and videos that are also on YouTube. You will learn much from her and want to try out many of the things she does and plants she plants. While she is promoting PW, I find that she is worth watching.

Not a blog, but a good old fashioned newspaper article!
Each Sunday in the Shreveport Times, Dr. Joe White has a column on gardens and/or landscapes that is always relevant to our Northwest Louisiana gardens.
Recently, the Shreveport Times decided to no longer include Dr. Joe White's article in the paper. If you will miss this article each Sunday, contact the editor and let him know. We can make a difference!
