Cleaning out the Blogger Closet!

November 3, 2013: Disclaimer! I've been thinking of blogging, taking pictures for future blogs, but not "doing it!" for the last 2 or 3 years! I have a backlog and just found the perfect vehicle to set things straight - the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) - a November tradition (yea, contest), where participants post daily on their blogs, as well as the NaBloPoMo site on  BlogHer. I did this once before in '09 and found it a good exercise in just, well, "doing it!" So, I'll be cleaning that backlogged closet full of ideas. I know I will benefit, we'll see about you! Here's my first entry, from the first day of the Garden Bloggers 2013 Fling - saved and waiting to be posted! J

June 27th: I. am. excited. We're leaving for "The Fling"! A soundtrack from the old movie, San Francisco, plays in my own personal entertainment system (my head!), although an octave lower and a bit more Broadway.

Jeanette McDonald charming Clark Gable with her high notes!

We arrive in record time, check in to our hotel and go for some look-around. My roommate and travel partner is Tina Henricksen, a fellow garden designer from Roseville. We have fun getting settled in.

It is a day made for heaven. I used to work in this area and have great memories. "San Francisco! Open Your Golden Gate!"

The pigeons seagulls (ahem) at the Yerba Buena Gardens at 3rd and Mission are having a bit of a splash!

We have so much fun, we miss the bus to our opening event! Jeeze ... we take the Bart over and get picked up. All is well.

  1. Those are gulls not pigeons! We were in SFO this time last year and had a blast! I highly recommend the Market on Embarcadero. It's WONDERFUL for foodies, and garden lovers. Just spend a few hours there!

  2. Well ... gulls, huh? I do believe you're rignt! Thanks, Eliza
