I'm scheduled to give another GPOD talk (A few of you will be getting emails in the next two weeks as I put together the slideshow…), and a number of people have emailed to say that they'll be at the show, and that they'd love to meet up with a bunch of fellow GPODers!
The RSVPs so far:
Glenda Curdy (Nurserynotnordstrom) May Kald (GrannyMay) – tentative Catherine Campbell (CrannyCC) – tentative Tia Scarce Jeanne Cronce (Greengenes) Sheila Schultz Nora Shirley Graves Chris Niblack (ChrisSeattle)
So…who else is going to be there?? Let us all know in the comments, and we can start planning an outing! Perhaps after-dinner drinks one night at the bar at the Sheraton? I'll repeat this announcement for the next week or so, at least, and keep a running list of who's coming….enticement for even more people to come. Oh, and when you comment to say you'll be there, give us your real name so that I can plan name tags that include both that and your screen name…

Happy New Year to you, Cynthia... although by the time I type this, it might already be Jan. 2...my knowledge of time zones outside the USA needs improvement. I love reading some of the African names of your plant material (although, of course, you kindly translated things to English) ...like the red leaved succulent euphorbia being commonly known as African Milk bush...no doubt, the name reflects the milky whitish sap the stems bleed. This garden looks as lush in Nov. s it does in Aug....what a treat.
Thank you! There's a page on my blog (http://enclosuretakerefuge.com) with the names and some culture notes for most of the plants in my garden (I'll try to add more this week).
Beautiful garden Cynthia. The deep and lush beds are fabulous and boast such a variety of plants! Well done
Hey Michelle, I plan on attending the NWFS this February...hope to see many of the GPODers there
Thank you! and thanks to Michelle and Fine Gardening for showing it.
Such a park-like estate! I am trying to pick a favorite plant or view, but I can't! Both euphorbia are amazing, the ginger spectacular and the traveler's palm such a stately presence. Thanks for bringing a slice of Rwanda to us!
Managed to miss this posting yesterday. Still loving the gorgeous views and plants. When does the bougainvillea hedge bloom and for how long? It must be a spectacular swathe of colour at that time. I don't know why I am surprised to see roses, except that I thought they didn't appreciate living somewhere where they couldn't have a dormant period. Thanks again Cynthia.
