Fortunately, he still showed up to be supportive, because this was the first get-together I have hosted in years, and except for Peter (and Nigel, of course), no other gardeners have seen my garden. It was both exciting and scary! I was a bit torn about my duties as garden host -- I could do the Vanna White thing and parade around the garden, pointing out the best parts, or I could just let people take it in on their own. Fortunately, I opted for letting them make the rounds on their own. I would have ended up apologizing for its shortcomings (or what I perceive as its shortcomings), and that just wouldn't do. I put Nigel in charge of taking photos and he did a great job!

|Bloggers contemplate the offerings of Ricki (Sprig to Twig) which Loree kindly brought up for her. They do all rather look like they expect the plants to attack at any moment. Either that, or it's ready, set, grab!|
It was great to have so many bloggers all gathered together here in my garden. I had a blast, and I hope they did too!
