Are you thinking that Matt and Suzanne are still here?
No, they stayed a fun-filled week,
then hooked up the motor home
and went on their way
to visit with Amish friends in PA and attend an auction.
That's one serious motorhome!
I'd love to see a photo of it parked by the Amish farmhouse!
In the last post, I was moaning and fantasizing
about wanting help from the gardeners at Montpelier.
See the bare bed and weeds growing in front of the house?
As it turns out, who needs Montpelier?
Through an introduction from Arthur Bartenstein
(who helped with the stoop and step design of the entryway)
a local plantswoman extraordinaire is going to help
with the design and implementation of the front beds!!
In friendly county fashion, she invited me to her home
for lunch and a visit
so that I could see her garden
and get some ideas now that I've moved up several gardening zones.
Maybe I shouldn't have gone...
It was like bringing a recovering alcoholic to the Jack Daniels Distillery.
Or maybe a heroin addict to a poppy field?
Heaven, absolute heaven....
Oh, I feel the gardening itch coming on strong.
Repeat after me:
"I will NOT go into gardening in a large way again....."
Yeah right. :)
