After the Conference: Easing Back into Life

Hi, Everyone.  I have missed you.  My normal life was completely buried by the planning and execution of the Heritage Rose Foundation conference, and it's going to take me a while to ease back into whatever life and routine I had before.

I would love to do a full report on the conference, with tons of photos and insights, but I can't.  I took very few photos over the course of the three days, as I was concentrating on making sure that each event kept to the schedule and went as planned.  All I can really do now is breathe a big sigh of relief and move on.



I can share this photo that my friend Jill took of me on a garden visit after the conference was over.  I love how it captures me in my natural habitat, concentrating on framing a perfect image with my phone.  So typical!

I hope that I will soon catch up with everyone.  Thanks for sticking around ... for checking on me ... and for being here.

    1. Hi, Teresa! It WAS a wonderful conference, and I enjoyed it very much. The people who attended were super ... no chance of boring anyone with endless talk of roses during that weekend. :)

      Our core group of full-conference registrations was 75. Each activity during the weekend had a few ala-carte attendees, bringing totals to up to 80. The banquet, as I expected, was the popular activity with 95 people in attendance. It was a wonderful crowd, perfect weather, and a delightful way to finish off what turned out to be a memorable event.

    1. I think that relaxing is part of my problem. It's not a state that I'm accustomed to. For me, relaxing is more like working in the garden than chilling. The garden was pretty close to perfect, and there's not a whole lot out there for me to do right now. Fortunately, there are always weeds to deal with .... :)

    1. ... and here I am thinking that I need to come up and visit YOU, to see the things that your husband created over the winter, and walk through YOUR garden. Our rain has made it almost a delight to pull weeds; they come out so easily, but there sure are a LOT of them.
