For several years my friend Rachel and I have gone on garden tours each month that the roads are passable. We travel mostly to Janet's and Connie's for inspiration and ideas, new seeds or plants. Now Rachel's mom Hildi joins us. Yesterday was our first of the year, but Rachel's littlest one was sick. Hildi and I couldn't bear to cancel our tour, so we determined to encourage Rachel to go next week. And, who knows, maybe we'll be able to get away again to go with her for another dose of Connie-itis. As Connie's husband tells us, Connie is the prettiest flower in her garden!
It wasn't really a 'garden tour', but a tour of Connie's "Seedery". She saves seeds, as do I, so an exchange was presented as the monthly offering this time. There was a cozy fire in the woodstove and a sweet treat in the oven (Rhubarb Crisp). We had a lovely time of sharing seeds and conversation!
