#FightKatie Garden Bloggers Rally Around One of Their Own

Earlier this week Katie, of GardenPunks.com, went into the hospital with what she thought was a case of the flu. It has since been discovered that it is something far more serious. At first we didn't know if it should be mentioned outside of private messages on social networking sites like Twitter & Facebook. As the family set up a webpage, of sorts, to help keep friends and family informed; many garden bloggers took to speaking publicly about the battle that our Katie is facing.

The conversation jumped from social media platforms to our home turf, garden blogs. Here is a collection of links to posts garden bloggers have made about Katie and her battle. In no particular order...

Daffodil Planter-A Snowy Moon for Katie.
Our Little Acre-The Power of Twitter.
Auntie Debbie's Garden- Prayers for Katie.
Read Between the Limes- There are tears in my beer.
My Skinny Garden- Petunia Seedlings.
Farmer Fred Rant- Where's Your "Tough Girl" Hat When You Need It?
Sacramento Gardening- For you, Katie
Brown Thumb Mama- A few Garden Updates
Garden Misadventures- Thinking healing Thoughts
Aspie Teacher-Nothing Less
Interleafings-Life comes at you

If I've missed one let me know. On Twitter some bloggers have been using the #fightkatie hashtag to send encouraging message and updates.
