Gardening on the Go

I've been running from one local garden event to another. Who knew mid-June was so jam-packed with local garden events? Of course, many of these events I hosted or co-hosted, so I should have anticipated that flurry, right? I've been taking photos at most of these and have posted albums of them over at my Facebook page. You should be able to click on the links below and view these albums even if you are not on Facebook. If you are on Facebook and recognize yourself, be sure to Tag yourself and also to Friend me.
