Do you know Lee May? I don't really know him but I feel like I do. He is a garden blogger with a kind, gentle wit and an appreciation for simple, natural forms. We shared a love of rocks, writing, and fearless pruning.
Lee May has died of cancer after a very short illness and when I read his last post I burst into tears, thick, shocked drops that filled my eyes. How can I cry for someone I don't know? Because blogs aren't truly about the garden but the gardener. When you get to know the blogger, you also get to know the gardener and you are an easy lot to love.
