The only things thriving in my garden ...


Yup, children. The children and the chickens are the only things thriving in my garden this year. The rest is overgrown, under watered or just plain dead. So of course I'm a bit nervous about hosting a handful of local garden bloggers in, oh, 10 hours. But it will be good to talk about gardening and find out what everyone else is doing in their gardens.
So far this is who says they're coming: Paula at Petunia's Garden,  Catherine of A Gardener in Progress, Alison over at Bonney Lassie, Molly of Life on Tiger Mountain, Kit from Gardener's Roost, plus Yvonne and Julia.
It will be good to catch up and compare garden notes, or lack thereof. I have to say the handful of times I've gathered with this group, SAGBUTT for those unfamiliar, I've always had a fabulous time and came away inspired and rejuvenated. It's a wonderful thing to meet up with great people and fun gardeners! Over a couple years, the group has met at Molly's home, as well as Daniel's farm, the Center for Urban Horticulture, and Washington Park Arboretum. And this time around, Kit has graciously invited the group to tour some gardens associated with the Northwest Horticultural Society, so the day will just keep getting better.

I am so excited to be getting together again, thanks to you for putting this together! I didn't realize you had chickens--I really want some, so I'll be bending your ear about them. See you soon!

Children and chickens are two of the best things to have thriving in your garden! Looking forward to seeing you all soon. Getting ready to leave as I type :)

I didn't see this last night before I went to bed. It was so good to get together with other people who are just as garden-crazy and plant-crazy as me! I loved seeing your chickens and interrogating you about them. And, of course, meeting everyone! Looking forward to more outings.

Yesterday was so much fun. Thanks again for hosting and sharing some eggs. The girls ate them not long after I got home. So looking forward to the upcoming meetings.
Getting to see Ciscoe's garden was really fun. Both he and his garden were awesome.
