Weekend garden events: I am at Homestead Gardens Sunday
This weekend's garden events include the Perennial Affair at Homestead Gardens in Davidsonville, and I am delighted to be among the line-up of speakers for the weekend.
I will be talking about "Gardening on the Internet" Sunday at noon. And then I am hanging around for Gene Sumi's advice on maintaining my perennial garden and the talk on solar-powered water features. I soooo want a water feature.
