Thank you

Have you all been touring? There was so much to do, that I had to rely on my wonderful guest bloggers to cover even a part of everything that was going on! I hope you have all sent in your passports so you can be a part of the Great Giveaway our sponsors have put together.

You have been hearing about Le Tour from my viewpoint, but what about you? What did you discover that surprised and delighted you? What classes did you take?

Some of you may have heard rumors that this year marked the last Le Tour des Plants, and that is partially true. The OAN has produced this event for four years, introducing area gardeners to new nurseries and generating interest and enthusiasm for fall gardening. Unfortunately, economic realities are forcing us to scale back our programs, including Le Tour des Plants. Some determined and dedicated nurseries are vowing to continue the fall nursery excursion next year. And if things look better next year, the OAN hopes to continue the tradition. Look for further news in this blog and future Random Acts of Gardening newsletters.

My heartfelt thanks to every single one of you for supporting our local nurseries and retail garden centers with your encouraging words and hard-earned dollars. If you listen carefully, you can hear the chorus of thanks from them–it sounds kind of like frogs singing and the rustle of growing things.

Stay tuned for more gardening goodness running up to the Yard, Garden & Patio Show, Feb. 12-14, 2009.
