What A Week

Saturday and Sunday April 24 & 25th I was a vendor at the Jonquil Festival in Smyrna, Monday Ivan Tatum and I went to nurseries on a rainy day and bought supplies such as 5 different types of annuals, containers, Mini-nuggets, Natures Helper, sand, perlite, cow manure, water grabber, lime, and then delivered them to the 3rd floor classroom for tomorrows class. Tuesday we brought in all the trowels, coffee filters, shovels, buckets, tarps, wheelbarrow and more for our Container Gardening class of 35 seniors. It took a while to clean up the remaining mess when class was over. Wednesday Ivan and I drove to Blairsville for an all-day gardening symposium where I was a speaker. Thursday I rehearsed my next talk, practiced guitar and packed for two upcoming events. Friday April 30 my brother Robert and I played at Borders Bookstore in Atlanta - came home and unpacked the music gear then loaded up the gardening stuff. It was 12:30 before I got to bed. Saturday morning back up at 6 AM and on the road to Dawsonville Ga where I was a speaker and a vendor at the Arts In The Garden symposium. What a week! Sunday May 2nd and I am resting and wondering why I put myself through all that stuff. I have been so busy that I have neglected my own garden to the point that when a female fellow Master Gardener asked when would be a good time for her to come over and see my garden I said "At night."
