You're Invited!

I'll be doing a talk we're calling "Curb Appeal for a Modern Age" at the Rancho Cordova Library Garden Club on Friday, March 1. The group meets on the first Friday of the month from 1 - 2:30.

It will be a wing bang thru several favorite subjects:
  • the mostly boring-ness of our front yards
  • basic design principles
  • a workable approach to re-designing your own front yard
  • resources to help you do a good job (financial, vendors, etc.)
  • cookies? giveaway? you'll have to be there to find out!
Whether you need garden design, coaching, seasonal maintenance or planting, Geno's Garden can help!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I think I should be calling this post, "We All Gotta Start Somewhere!". I haven't posted anything on my blog in over 6 months. I've been places, taken pictures and thought about it, but I guess the inertia was too much. Sometimes we're waiting for the right moment - some big deal moment - but I think the right moment is usually when you go into action. That's the start of the moment.
So ... we're having this weather and I'm outside raking leaves and I take this picture. Right moment for raking, right moment for snapping this picture (the quince is flowering right now!) and right moment to be at my keyboard saying hello.
Happy Valentine's Day from my garden to yours!
