Thanksgiving Flower Arranging Class

Do you have a list?

I hate to call it a ‘bucket list’ because I quite frankly hate to use cliches from Jack Nicholson movies – especially when I had my list before the movie. But on THAT list is a goal that I made when I moved here 8 years ago….to start using my barn for good things. Things like classes, a meeting place for groovy goings-on, and generally a clubhouse for creative garden design types.

So this announcement is the first step towards that end. Roanne Robbins and I are holding the first (inaugural!) Pinnacle Barn Event. It is actually two events in one day (so you can pick the one which works best for your schedule).

If you would like to learn from Roanne about how to make Thanksgiving centerpieces from treasures that you find in the garden, the woods and the grocery store….this is the place to come. And we couldn’t let you just leave with a beautiful centerpiece of your own making …no, we will also ply you with groovy music, great creative camaraderie, and some sweet treats. So will you join us on this adventure?

It is November 14th, Session #1 will run from 1pm – 3pm and Session #2 will run from 6pm – 8pm. There is a small charge of $45 to cover expenses and materials….but I sure you will feel like you got your $’s worth (I’ve been wanting to take a class like this myself and I’ve seen costs as high as $300 – and it didn’t take place a pretty rustic barn!!)

We have limited the registration because we don’t want to spread ourselves too thin on our first go….so sign up early and reserve your space.
Here is the link to sign up for session #1 (from 1pm to 3pm)

and Here is the link to sign up for session #2 (from 6pm – 8pm)

Since this is our first time — I would really, really appreciate it if you could help spread the word.  I know that many of you are not local enough to join us…but perhaps you have friends who are….we would love to meet and welcome as many readers, aspiring floral designers, garden lovers, and new friends as possible!  Thank you – Rochelle

p.s. – you can sign up over there on the right hand column too….——->

Yes, A Tree That Smells Of Cotton Candy

If you have ever been up close and personal with a katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) then you already knew what I was going to talk about by the title of today’s post. Yes, as the leaves are changing color in autumn, standing underneath a katsura tree, you get the aroma of cotton candy or caramelized…

Garden Boots

When I came across what will be my next pair of garden boots,  I had this idea that I would share with you a picture of  my current pair…which I love, for all their broken-in, muddy, earthy glory.  I have nearly worn the heels off them (I might be a podiatrists worst nightmare).  But then…
