The week was a blur. Anything needing to be done, got done including teaching my son to mow the lawn. He was ready, so was I. I still have to stay with him while he mows, but that’s OK, he’s doing a fine job.

Thursday/Friday, photographer Virginia Weiler was here to shoot Helen’s Haven for Nature’s Garden magazine. It was good to see and work with Ginny again. It had been a year since we worked together.
Saturday/Sunday was the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days tour, also benefiting the JC Raulston Arboretum. We had 6 great gardens open this year. Not only was it fun meeting new people and chatting leisurely in the garden, we also raised money for two worthy causes. It was, once again, a huge success.
I meant to take photos during the tour on Saturday, but got busy chatting with the visitors. These visitors included my blogging buddy Freda Cameron. Here is Cameron’s story on her visit.
Several other friends came through to see the gardens and to support the Garden Conservancy and the JC Raulston Arboretum. I was good to see everyone, especially kk who came up from the coast to see the gardens.
Helen’s Haven was also featured on Shawna Coronado’s blog The Casual Gardener
