WOW, what a cool birthday present I had yesterday...from Canada's largest daily newspaper too - the Toronto Star had a WHOLE PAGE on both the gardening site and the tours site...I am stunned and thrilled. Hope you got to see it and if not, you will find it on my facebook page. Besides that went out to a lovely dinner with friends to a posh resto, had about 5 bouquets of flowers from my sweetie and got many BD wshes from friends...thankful I am.

Just put up this past week are recaps of my trip to Bulgaria and my tour to Paris and London...always a great time at the Chelsea Flower Show.
