About 100 people showed up to listen to our live band Christmas open house...what a blast. Lots of food, drink and new friends made and the best thing was that the weather was perfect...what fun we had. Children swimming in the pool, people dancing and eating...really a nice evening. Now we are getting ready for a much smaller open house we have in our condo this coming Wednesday. Then a break and Christmas dinner at our place with some friends. Life is good.
I still have recaps of my Argentina tour to get up and Australia as well. Singapore is up now under the Pix area - what a gorgeous country as I am sure you will discover looking at all the photos I took. I have updated the tours only site with the long day by day on Turkey and Chelsea so now all that is left is South Africa. Most exciting is that my tours to INDIA, TURKEY and IRELAND are all a go with each just having a couple of spots left. ISRAEL, CHELSEA and SOUTH AFRICA all still have some room left, but not much! Have you discovered all the garden events in our Events area yet? Our Garden Tours Site is where you will find our very latest tour offerings. All tours are now up for 2014 and booking!

Our Panama site is at WhyPanama.net Moving to a tropical country from Zone 3a in Alberta was sure some kind of adjustment, but one that we are so thankful we did. It has opened up a whole new world of plant material and article opportunities for me.
