Re: GWA Symposium/ was gas shortage


Zem,

I'm amazed by how small the world is, sometimes. I don't know Jason, and with 600+ people at the conference, I barely had time to say hello to Carol, much less to chat, but I'm glad that they were able to share their photos with your group. Portland is truly amazing, and I'm sure that Carol had her usual humorous take on things.

For those that didn't have the opportunity to go, check out this blog about Lucy Hardiman's garden, and don't miss the links to Nancyland, Urban Edibles, and Laughing Spirit.

I'm always amazed at people who can go to a conference and post in real time, or so very quickly. I downloaded the Portland photos to my laptop, and have finally moved them to my desktop, but I still haven't had time to really look at them. Perhaps it's having a 17 year old, senile dog (the reason I'm awake at this hour), or a tiny, but growing kitten (he doesn't need the bottle now and it is up to 2.4 pounds!) and all the menagerie in between that keeps me behind, or maybe it's just that nearly 6 decades of wear and tear have taken their toll. Anyway, the blogger did a good job, and saw some of the gardens that I missed. I did, however, have a chance to see Lucy's garden in the flesh, and to talk to her briefly. She's quite a colorful character. I think I've got some pictures of the mosaics that she did in the "hell space" between sidewalk and curb in case you've missed seeing them in a mag or on TV.

I thought of you when I saw slides of the GWA Symposium at our October MG meeting. Jason Reeves and Carol Reese, our ornamental horticulturists, were at the symposium. The MG program was on all Jason's travels during September. You certainly had some nice scenery.
