Another Day in Paradise

I had a great weekend of making Seed Art at Meet Me Outdoors in St. Louis Festival.  It was a learning experience, and I’ll have more tricks up my sleeve for next install.  (Colanders, for one, thanks to Lorraine).  Lots of love to my delightful and steadfast volunteers: Jonathon & Jennifer Wells, Perry and Jahn Epstein, Lorraine and Gabriella Cange, Bethany Ottens, Karen McCarthy, George Dirkers; Christine Faron, Lilah and Ellis Faron, Abby, Laura and Phil Skroska.

Thanks also to Amy of Missouri Wildflowers, the intrepid Sheila Voss, Suzanne Gregory, Deb, Jennifer Smith, and Bob of MoBot and all the people who helped make the Meet Me Outdoors in St Louis Event such a good one.

My cell-phone sacrifice to the weather gods must have been enough.  It was perfect weather all weekend.  I met lots of great garden visitors and staff- and got to spend a few hours with some of my favorite people- the friends who have made this large scale work possible even with a bum foot.  I’m excited to sift through timelapse footage and stills this coming week.
