Today's photos are from Lynn Nehring out in western Wisconsin. We visited Lynn almost exactly a year ago (refresh your memory HERE), and she's back with an update. She says, "In the fall of 2013 I had to endure many changes, as we had to have a mound septic system installed. I dreaded it; however, I saw opportunity as well. In October 2013 I planted a new island bed between an existing hill and the new hill created by the mound. I've included a picture from fall 2013 and another from July 2014. Sun and shade perennials did very well in this area and I've been thrilled with the outcome. Just goes to show you change is good!" But….how are these photos less than a year old, Lynn? You are Super-Gardener!! What color is your cape? What an amazing comeback. ***We'll get to see lots of Lynn's containers tomorrow–stay tuned!***

Come and meet up at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show this year!
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)
Jeanne Cronce (Greengenes)
Chris Niblack (ChrisSeattle)
Kielian DeWitt (Annek)
Linda Skyler (Meelianthus)
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…
