In many parts of the world right now it is winter...and another season to rejoice for what it offers. Many pore through garden catalogs searching for new gems to plant this year. Many of you delight in the sheer pleasure of watching them grow and dreaming of the time you can plant them outside and share with your friends..that is what we do isn't it. We dream, we plant, we hope and we share...enjoy this time as it prepares you for another busy and happy season. I hope you are following me on facebook so you can see what I am up to here in Panama and on my travels. Ecuador was fantastic and so was our cruise out of Rio into Argentina and a few days in the extraordinary Andes in the Uco Valley surrounded by vineyards and wines. Now I prepare for my next tour to Portugal.

My tours are all up on the garden tours site now for 2017...hope you get a chance to visit and perhaps even join me on one of them. Ecuador is full and Portugal is full...and now Chelsea 2017 is fully booked. I only have one room left now on South Africa.

Tours so far for 2018 are Spain in March, China in April and Chelsea in May and I am thinking about Japan. Let me know if you wish to be notified when ready for 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.
