Evening in the Garden Report:

It was an amazing evening. I mean, it surpassed all my expectations.
We tasted a fantastic "Museum Blend" that Wawawai Canyon Winery and the Museum crew created. It will be for sale in September. It is really good!

South Fork and The Black Cypress really went over the top on food. We sipped Mojitos and wine while nibbling on sliders, souvlaki and freshly smoked salmon. Did I mention the cold cucumber soup and ceviche?

It rained a little bit as we were getting started but the evening weather turned out beautiful. The light was sublime.

This was one of the best parties I've been to. The gardens were beautiful, there was food, wine, song and a relaxing low key vibe in the air. This space was built for a party. We already set the date for next year ( July 14 )

Floral Art...

These are arrangements I made for the Museum of Art/WSU fundraising event we hosted last weekend. It was a smash success!

I put myself through college working a florist shop. It's was really fun to put that skill to work again. The arrangements were my contribution to the silent auction. Most of the flowers came from our yard down by the house. ( I never pick flowers from the garden up by the shop) It made me realize I could do arrangements for myself sometime..just because.

Donation to Haiti

Thank you dear gardening community.

This is the second year we have sold fair-trade Haitian metal oil-drum art. These are beautiful happy pieces that are suitable for indoors or out.
Each year we donate 20% of the sale price to Partners in Health for their continued good works in Haiti.

This year we sent a check for $1337.00
