I'll be away from the blog until early next week, as I'm off to the Late Show Gardens in Sonoma. I'm speaking there tomorrow about my new book, going to parties thrown by Saxon Holt and Shirley Watts (yes, I'm a little intimidated by the star power down there in the Bay Area). Mostly I'm looking forward to seeing what the garden show of the future looks like - I'm expecting it'll be rich in inspired modern designs with an environmental bent. I'm counting on seeing gardens unlike any I've seen before, including the bee-themed one Shirley Watts is designing. I'll take lots of photos and notes and post them next week....tune in to see mind-blowing garden design.
In the meantime, check out Timber Press's marketing idea for my new book. You can find it on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=daVy3GvWkRA or above the New Low Maintenance Garden book cover (right).
