Off to the west…

I’m taking the show on the road again.  For a spring starved landscape designer, my trip to the San Francisco Bay area for the next week couldn’t come at a better time.  It is snowing outside here, but it will be spring there.

San Francisco Bay 300x193 Off to the west...

For three days I will be participating in meetings of various kinds that will help determine a bold and bright future for the Association of Professional Landscape Designers–I serve on its Board of Directors.

Adventure is planned for the rest of my trip with wonderful tour guides–a friend from high school who I haven’t seen since I was a resident artist at Peter’s Valley in the 70s–she still dances to the Grateful Dead, a new friend who I met via a project we coordinated together last year and who is hanging out in San Francisco for a bit, and two people –a landscape designer and a garden writer–who I have never met in the flesh but who have become part of my life over the past 10 years via various internet paths.  A different experience is planned for each friend–a walk in Muir Woods, a day trip to wine country and an exploration of the city.  I’m very excited to see the San Francisco spring and have the incredible good fortune to have great friends who are willing to show it to me.

    traveling mercies, my friend. enjoy your escape from winter!

  2. Darn! I was hoping you were going to say you’d be in the Bay Area for the SF Flower and Garden Show in late March. Sounds like a great itinerary though.

    It’s really too bad the two weren’t at the same time…I’d like to see the flower show and meet up with everyone!

    have a safe flight,
    and while you are staying in Berkeley you might want to check out Annie’s Annuals Nursery – about 5 miles from where you are staying .
    hope the weather stays nice for your visit.

  4. Hope it all goes well. Have a great time!

    Best Wishes

    I hope to. I have a very varied plan of attack!

    Flora Grubb is my only planned destination in SF! I so want to see it in person…can’t wait!

  6. I kept meaning to ask if you would be here with the rest of the APLD contingent. Sounds like you’ve got a great week planned. I’ll be at the district summit on Monday – excited to see you again!

    Fantastic! It’s an exciting time for APLD. Excited to see you too!
