As Mark Cullen says, 'We see June: the wait, water and grow month'. I love June, the name alone brings joy, excitement and a 'hurry up and wait' attitude. Waiting for those just picked tomatoes, that exquisite basil and rosemary that makes you hands smell so good, and oh those sweetpeas. I miss all of this so much at this time of year. I will have to content myself with growing rosemary and a huge basil plant that was left for me to tend from good friends who are globetrotting right now. I do love running my hands through them both! Now I am preparing for my Hampton Court Tour. It will be wonderful to meet everyone and we will delight in the gardens we will see, oh yes we will. The HC Show is amazing and being in July, so much warmer. Belgium is a go as well, so excited and if you are still thinking about it, time is running out as the tour closes the end of this month. My China 2019 tour is 50% booked already so don't dally if you plan on coming. Spain 2019 and Chelsea Flower Show 2019 are booking too! Small group tours so I do hope you can join me next year!! Likely my last time in China.

I hope you are following me on facebook so you can see what I am up to here in Panama and on my travels.

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.
