I had a wonderful day on Sunday in the company of people I’ve been Twittering with for almost two years. Most of us had met before, but some of us had not. We met at Margaret Roach’s beautiful garden for breakfast, a stroll and plenty of conversation. After that we went in a caravan to Loomis Creek Nursery and then a few of us went to lunch.
I have gladfly syndrome in these situations–talking to this one and that one and the next one and then back again. I also, as some found out first hand, I have a hard time concentrating on anything when there’s new eye candy…that’s the next shiny thing syndrome!
Here’s some pix from the day…mostly ideas for my own inspiration rather than a documentation of what happened.
Margaret writes eloquently and informatively about her garden and gardening on her blog A Way to Garden. This was my favorite foliage combination–all simple and easy plants to find…just extraordinarily well used.
After our garden stroll we caravaned over to Loomis Creek Nursery where there was more chatter and much shopping! Even I bought something…

I’m a sucker for American 19th century architecture–this was the next shiny thing when a small group of us went to lunch in Hudson, NY. I’d love to design a garden for this…wouldn’t you?
