Why I'm busy

My soap's in the Father's Day gift guide.

Of the June issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine!

Holy cow. I'm hoping that business will be good, but not so good that I can't handle it. It's coming out this week... wish me luck!

Garden tour

After the gardening conference, we managed to beat the rain and see several gardens on the tour.

This garden, our first stop, turned out to be my favorite. It has its own website. I particularly like the page showing the evolution of the site, which started with some pretty bare bones.

I loved all the beautiful statuary, and the numerous small touches tucked here and there that blended so well with the plants.

A chandelier hanging basket.

A Euphorbia whose full name I didn't catch.

More later.


Update: I've heard from the gardener himself, and the Euphorbia in question is "Despina". Thanks Phillip!
