Wasn’t Saturday just amazing?
I was almost wishing I hadn’t signed up for Garden Day in Grand Forks. . . almost.
My fabulous gardening friend Ann and I had a wonderful time–although I must admit that, for me, the best part of the day was the great conversation we had on the drive there and back.
But Paul James was fun to see–I’ve been watching his show for years and have always thought he seemed like a really fun guy–he is! It was good to see him in person.
The class we took in digital photography in the garden was interesting–I’d have to say, I was hoping it would be a bit more advanced, but with such a huge topic I find I always learn at least one or two new things.
Ann and I went a little nuts at one of the vendor booths–they were selling garden art pieces made from scrap metal. . . she bought three big metal items and I bought two. We did get them in the trunk of her car, though, so that was a relief. I will share a photo later this week. . . it’s been quite the whirlwind around here lately.
One of the other best parts of Saturday was that I was home by 3:00 and actually had some time to putter around the yard a bit–and WHAT a beautiful day for that! The weather was just amazing. I did some weeding, pulled some grass, set out the rabbit traps, and then had a beer and did a little reading on the deck. If only every day could be like that!
And here’s a little something that’s blooming in my garden now–I just love these little blue Iris reticulata. So cheery and bright!
