FOG members came out last Saturday to visit our property. Many were enthusiastic about our plants and grasses. This week we had the Barriere Garden club out here and it also was a high energy time with lots of plants finding new homes. Next week Laughing Swan has the Kamloops garden club out for a garden tour, so we have lots of work to do before then.

The plant sale was a wonderful two days with sun and some showers. Everyone who showed up seemed to enjoy their time here, and the coffee.  People came in a steady stream so we were able to talk individually and show everyone around without a feeling of being rushed. We hope FOG members enjoyed it as much as we did.
