Are you traveling this month?  I hope so – we all need a break every once in a while. I’m giving August a theme this year (this is a new thing….what do you think about every month having a theme?).  The theme is traveling and I will have lots of posts related to garden visits,…

Garden Bloggers Event

  So here is the deal…I am finally, (FINALLY!)
