My rose propagation exhibit at yesterday's Culpeper flower show was a big hit. There weren't enough people there at any given time for me to do any dedicated demonstrations, but I did answer a LOT of questions.
What's that I see in the center of the table with the rest of the items in my display? That would be the award given to the best educational exhibit, scoring 95 points or higher. I was in total shock when I saw it. I don't do these things for awards or recognition ... I get my reward when people go home and have success when they try what I teach them. (It's still really cool to win, though.)
I have two new game camera photos to show you. In its new spot overlooking part of the Rose Field, I captured two decent photos. Night #1 had one photo of a deer ... look carefully on the right.
Night #2, the camera captured another image of a fox.
I mentioned that I was out of town from Saturday until Tuesday of last week, helping my brother. He and his wife are renovating her mother's former house near Abingdon, Virginia. My brother is a VERY talented kitchen installer by trade, and he gets to put his considerable talents to work on his own project this time ... updating the place to make it into a comfortable second home. My part of the renovation will be to paint the cabinets. I'm working on a custom color that I know you're going to love.
What am I doing today? The weather is beautiful and it's a great day to work on the new rose bed that I'm putting in along the fence behind our garage.
I hope all of you have a great Sunday!!
