We were on the tour six years ago. Some things have changed since then. (We hope the changes are obvious.) We had 300 people tour the pond the first time. No idea what the numbers will be this time. Kim has taken a week off work and has been hard at it; making sure everything looks nice for the tour. I actually have both Saturday and Sunday off so that will be nice. Looking forward to spending some time talking to pond viewers.

That will be a ton of fun! I would love to go someday. Maybe next year. If I were to go now my priorities would change and life would become complicated again. I just know it!

How wonderful! If I lived in Boise, I'd be therein a heartbeat! My folks live there. I may have to check out the pond when I get up there next. Have fun on your tour this weekend. I also wanted to let you know that I purchased my own domain name, so change my blog address in your Reader to I hope to continue to see you around.

Wish I could tour your pond! I know how you feel, getting ready for a tour like that. Our gardens are on a Master Gardener tour on August 9th. The best thing we could do to get ready for this is to somehow make it RAIN!

Looking forward to pictures from tour day! :-)
