We "did" the Johnson County Home and Garden Show in Overland Park, Kansas and we "did" it well. What that means is we had good crowds, our power point presentations went off without a hitch and we sold lots of books. It also means we came home not worn out but still in good shape and with energy to spare. I can't believe it!
Dave and I are busy writing books and giving lectures. He has a new book about two cats in Selby Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. I have a new book, My Garden Doctor, a reprint of a 1913 novel by Frances Duncan, and a new CD, My Grandmother's Aprons. Dave is back at work on his newest project; the tale of a family of rabbits in Kingwood Gardens in Ohio. I am working on the book about my grandmother's aprons.
We normally rest during March so we are ready to hit the gardens running in April. The month of March is usually devoted to hanging out with our friends in Sarasota, enjoying the month in warm weather, swimming in the pool and putting our feet in the white sand of Siesta Key Beach. Not so this year. Instead we are getting our condo ready to rent, finishing book projects and hosting friends and family. We will rest later.
Thanks to all the folks on facebook who are ordering my new book and CD. Thanks to all the gardeners who have continued ordering Lasagna Gardening to keep it in the top lists on amazon.com and other online bookstores.
