Thanksgiving Flower Arranging Class

Do you have a list?

I hate to call it a ‘bucket list’ because I quite frankly hate to use cliches from Jack Nicholson movies – especially when I had my list before the movie. But on THAT list is a goal that I made when I moved here 8 years ago….to start using my barn for good things. Things like classes, a meeting place for groovy goings-on, and generally a clubhouse for creative garden design types.

So this announcement is the first step towards that end. Roanne Robbins and I are holding the first (inaugural!) Pinnacle Barn Event. It is actually two events in one day (so you can pick the one which works best for your schedule).

If you would like to learn from Roanne about how to make Thanksgiving centerpieces from treasures that you find in the garden, the woods and the grocery store….this is the place to come. And we couldn’t let you just leave with a beautiful centerpiece of your own making …no, we will also ply you with groovy music, great creative camaraderie, and some sweet treats. So will you join us on this adventure?

It is November 14th, Session #1 will run from 1pm – 3pm and Session #2 will run from 6pm – 8pm. There is a small charge of $45 to cover expenses and materials….but I sure you will feel like you got your $’s worth (I’ve been wanting to take a class like this myself and I’ve seen costs as high as $300 – and it didn’t take place a pretty rustic barn!!)

We have limited the registration because we don’t want to spread ourselves too thin on our first go….so sign up early and reserve your space.
Here is the link to sign up for session #1 (from 1pm to 3pm)

and Here is the link to sign up for session #2 (from 6pm – 8pm)

Since this is our first time — I would really, really appreciate it if you could help spread the word.  I know that many of you are not local enough to join us…but perhaps you have friends who are….we would love to meet and welcome as many readers, aspiring floral designers, garden lovers, and new friends as possible!  Thank you – Rochelle

p.s. – you can sign up over there on the right hand column too….——->

Daily Garden: Cinderblock Planters

Do you remember a post here I that make a couple months ago about using stacked cinder blocks to make a vertical planter?….you can re-visit it here. I remember thinking as I wrote, how easy it would be to make a more refined version (in fact I think I said that in the post) —…

Dry Stone Inspiration

I want to share with you a picture of a dry stone wall that I really love.  It was built by Richard Clegg.  I love the vertical nature of the stones and the beautiful edge that they make for the stream.   Dry stacking is an art — I have tried it myself…my lack of patience…

Do We Really Need “Organic” Gardens?

Last weekend, while sharing the holiday with friends in Vermont, I landed myself in a slightly heated debate over ‘organic’.  We were staying in a house with four families and as it turns out, 3 of the 4 generally buy their groceries with very different priorities than the other.  Since we were shopping as a…
