About Lizbeth’s Garden

About Lizbeth's GardenHere you will find:

  • poetry:

    I want to write poetry that actually says something. So much modern poetry takes empty phrases that sound good with a compelling rhythm to tap into the reader’s emotions. I want to tap the reader’s emotions, but to go beyond the visceral and tell a story.

Where does the name Lizbeth’s Garden come from?

I love to garden, and grow a large vegetable and flower garden every year. I am in the (slow) process of converting my lawn to garden beds.

When I set out to create my blog and shop, I was looking for a name that would encompass the bounty of ideas and writing I had, as well as the myriad crafts I make. I imagine Lizbeth’s Garden as a welcoming cottage garden, full of beautiful flowers and plants, overflowing their beds. Come inside and walk around, I hope you find something to enjoy. If you do, be sure and visit my Etsy shop, also Lizbeth’s Garden.
