I could only get out for one morning- didn't know about the event till the last minute and had made other plans. Next year, more advance warning, please! Put me on any and all mailing lists- I love to participate :)

I still have a few observations to post! @anneanderson invited me to make observations in her bountiful yard :-D

So pleased to be able to participate! I had the opportunity after major construction to redo my garden and only included natives. With plenty of water flowing into my garden from surrounding terrain it is flourishing.

Thank you all!! Yes, this year the planning was not great (my fault!). I will do a better job next year! But it is great to see the participation going on. I was happy to be ahead of @jmgconsult for a little while ;) but very soon after she crushed me... haha!
