Peace for 2008

Peace to all my gardening friends for 2008. I hope that your hearts are full of love and your gardens will be full of flowers. This is the time of year when I relax from the cooking and shopping of the holidays and take time to enjoy the love and gifts I received from my wonderful family. I take the week between Christmas and New Years to decompress and not expect too much from myself. Time to get out a jigsaw puzzle and spend some lazy hours accomplishing little. By the end of the week I will be ready to reorganize and get going for the new year. And, of course, the many seed catalogs will start coming in the mail and the excitement will build, dreaming about the coming gardening season. Meantime, I observe the peacefulness outside my window and enjoy watching the antics of my Ringed-Neck Doves. Peace to all!

Hey Bev-

I was hoping to find a way to contact you and ask you some questions. I'm new to Colorado (FTC) and was used to nearly a full year of growing season. I'm from the gulf coast of Alabama!! I am so lost for plants and birds here! I feel like I'm from another planet and it looks like you know what you're doing. I'd love to learn from you- please Email me

Happy New Year! I hope the new year brings you all the things you love and enjoy.

Bev! Your gardens are beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing. I found them by searching for photos of Santa Fe Gardens.

I have been tapped to do a free lecture on waterwise landscape design this spring in the SLC, Utah area. Is there any chance you'd be willing to let me show a few of your photos as examples? I'm trying to debunk the idea that waterwise landscapes are sparse and your photos of both Santa Fe Gardens and your own 'hellstrips' illustrate this point so well. I would, of course, provide proper credit to you- I'm not looking to do anything unethical.

I'm not a frequent blog commentor (though I've bookmarked yours) so I'm not sure if you can e-mail me back or not. If I need to post an e-mail addy, let me know and I'll do so.

Rebecca, I have emailed you and would love to help you in any way I can.

Robin, thanks for visiting. I do soooo enjoy your blog and especially your bird photos. I always check to see what is new.

Bindersbee, please give me your email address. I cannot respond to comments directly. I'm sure I can help you out with some of my photos for waterwise gardening. I look forward to hearing from you.
