Southwest, here I come!

I’ve been waiting for a long time but now it’s finally here: summer vacation. In the morning we’re leaving for a road trip to the Southwest (northern Arizona, New Mexico, a corner of Colorado and parts of Utah).

My goal is to blog from the road as much as I can. It goes without saying that my camera will be very busy recording all the wonderful things we hope to see. With any luck, there will be time for the occasional nursery visit as well.

On the home front, I have many more plants needing to be hand-watered than ever before but I’m leaving detailed instructions for our house sitter. As much as I look forward to this trip, I’m already curious to see what might be in bloom when I get back.
