It was “Gardening Saturday” in Grand Forks yesterday and I made the trip with a friend from Master Gardeners, the other co-chair actually. She has a blog too – The Dirt. It’s pretty funny and full of good information on gardening.
I actually had not been to a garden day as a participant before, only as a worker bee so it was fun to be there and not have any pressure! Their keynote speaker this year was the famous (at least with the gardening crowd) Paul James. I actually didn’t know who he was before my friend told me about him. He had a gardening show on HGTV for about 15 years I believe. At any rate, he was very funny and knowledgeable about gardening.
The day was beautiful and we actually skipped out after lunch to head home – we were both anxious to get out and do some gardening. As much fun as it is to go to garden days, it is more fun to actually garden. :) It was really nice to have some girlfriend time though – husband and I usually spend our spare time together which I love, but it was really nice to have some time away. I didn’t realize how much I missed it!
While I was up there hubs and FIL went down to their lake place and put in the docks and lifts. Sounds like it was a lot of work but I know they are happy to have it done!
Tonight was the start of another round of dance classes – we have two classes of social dance this time around. The first class is SO good – we are going to be able to cover a LOT in that class. The second class is HUGE – 16 couples and it will be interesting to see who is left after the 5 weeks! My legs are tired after all that dancing, but it is a lot of fun.
Tomorrow we are going to look at another property about 25 miles from town. The house is ok, but it is on 25 acres and it has a pond/wetland on it! HOW AWESOME! Fingers crossed it is a good one!
Everybody have a great week! I have tulips blooming now – woohoo!
