Le Creuset braiser to cook enough food to feed the hungry horde - as long as you cook." (this braiser is teenager-proof). Then I just sit back with my laptop, pretend to be distracted typing, and soak in the sounds of youthful exuberance.
And while these 17-19 year olds innocently perceive me as the quiet, nerdy mom who plugs away on the computer writing my latest international espionage bodice-ripping plant mystery historical novel, they have no idea of the crazy fun time I had last week-end on my Fling.
So let me introduce you to a few of MY garden blogger friends from last week and give you chance to check out the their blogs. Cause I really only have a few minutes before I need to go start pulling out dessert.
|Helen Battersby and Cindy (My Corner of Katy)|
|Cindy (My Corner of Katy), Jean (Dig, Grow, Compost, Blog), Gloria (The Garden Bench)|

|Robin and I really can't tell who that is under that big hat but I'm sure we ended up best of friends.|

|Peter and Jasmine Gentling|
