Greetings readers! I have a new blog format and I’m in a learning curve. Yikes! I have had a bit on my plate the past 2 months. I finished the draft of my book and turned it into Timber Press. I finished the planning of the APLD International Conference with our APLD committee. Now I am finishing the manuscript editing with fabulous Timber Press editor, Lorraine Anderson AND working with my wonderful clients AND editing my garden for an APLD event: Dinner in the Garden. Editing includes weeding. It also includes filling in the pond. Yes, no more koi. Sniff… Plans are in the works for a new, much smaller, water feature. It will be cool, though. Waterlilies, included. And, much missed, bubbling sounds. Never underestimate the power of soothing water sounds in your garden.
