not a garden post

I didn't get to spend any time in the yard today. I left for a school planning seminar in Columbus at oh too early in the morning and got back way too late. A funny event happened near the end of the first seminar. The fire alarm went off. After a moment of hesitation because no one knew their designated exit door, 600-some odd educators filed out of the hotel. The hotel staff looked at us with that look that says "who are these people and what are they doing?" Well, we're teachers and what are you supposed to do during a fire drill? It was fun. The picture is us milling about because all the rooms had to be checked out. On a disappointing note, the presenter didn't show up for a seminar on post high school opportunities for at-risk kids, which are my kids. Do you sense the irony in that?

Oh, boy, and do I ever! On a brighter note: your blog has beautiful photos of beautiful plants. Now, I want to browse a while. I found you on Blotanical.

Of course! If ever there was a group that needs all the help it can get it is your kids.

Hurry home. You are needed in the garden.

That was very interesting, sometimes it is good to post about things other than your garden, we get a glimpse into what you are doing when you are not weeding! :)

Hi Jim,

It is nice to hear what is going on besides gardening.

My daughter is also a teacher for at-risk kids. This is her first year as a history teacher at an alternative school. So far, she is doing well.
