This evening I am looking forward to the second visit in this year's Author Series with CBC garden guru Lyndon Penner. He'll be reading from his latest book which focuses on native plants to grow in our Chinook region, and I love native plants. Also, Blue Grass Nursery will be giving a presentation and sharing gifts as well. Last night I was thrilled to meet author Will Ferguson (Governor General Award winner) and hear him speak about his latest novel 'Road Trip Rwanda' which is a humorous and sad story about his travels. It's such a fascinating story as he speaks of the genocide and how it still affects the country but also how they are overcoming the challenges. On Sunday my husband and I celebrate our 28th anniversary and my baby girl is home from university for a few days so it will be a fun weekend as we always enjoy organizing and attending events together.
