Irene Virag's Garden Party

I'm Irene Virag -- a writer, a gardener, a cancer survivor. I think ideas are like plants. They need nurturing to grow. And gardeners share both. So welcome to my blog. It’s all about what’s happening in my garden and beyond.

Great American Gardener

It's nice to be recognized for what you do. And so it was a real kick to learn that the American Horticultural Society named me a "Great American Gardener" as the recipient of the B.Y. Morrison Communication Award.

It's usually hard for me to toot my own horn but quitely honestly I can play a fanfare on this one. You can visit my website -- just click on "Kudos" -- and read all about it.

Dear Irene,

I got the news from AHS that you are officially a Great American Gardener. I always knew it -- much deserved.

Irene,
Cream does rise to the top -- eventually.
Congratulations -- you certainly deserve the AHS communication award.
I always hope there will be a market for quality.
