Idaho Garden Bloggers Tour
Well I think it's too late to panic now.
They'll be here tomorrow.
Teresa, Mary Ann, Heather and Nat.
The Official (well, actually unofficial) Idaho Garden Bloggers Tour begins tomorrow.
At our house.
The five of us, six actually; including Beth, have been visiting each others blogs for some time now. Inevitably I thought it would be nice to meet for coffee or some such innocent activity. Then Kim piped up and said, "Why not visit each other's gardens?" Duh! Of course! [smack self on forehead].
So there ensued multiple emails and planning and decisions and scheduling adjustments. And now it begins.
I have to admit a week ago I was scrutinizing our garden when I kind of, really did, freeze up in fear. My mind went something like this, "What was I thinking???"
Yes, a little panic crept in there. Inviting gardeners to our garden? REAL gardeners.
What if I miss a weed? A weed? What if I miss one ton of weeds????? Is it too late to spend a bunch of money at the garden center? Why oh why did I plant those flowers next to each other? Why didn't we finish ___________________________?????
Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.
Somehow this will all turn out OK. Right?
Yes it will.
What I'm really looking forward to is visiting THEIR gardens. That will be great.
Can't wait. I just wish Connie and Candace could be included in the schedule. I would love to visit their gardens. But since they garden at the other end of Idaho, visiting them would involve a 7 hour drive - one way. Perhaps one day we'll get up there.
I'll take some pics while they're here. (Or Kim will).
