After months of serious business getting ready for the 2011 Northwest Flower & Garden Show….we have been hearing some really healthy belly laughs.
Dress rehearsal from the artistic efforts of ‘Caprifolium’ and McGilvra Elementary School took off all edges and let us melt into our chairs, laughing and feeling grateful for the comedic relief. There’s Dudley and Emmett. And Paris, Gloria, and Mrs. Wentworth. Pay close attention to Beulah (pronounced with five syllables). Margot, Maria Rosita and Florence B (a nice way of saying ‘fluffybutt’) round out the flock of Ibis that will migrate into “The Garden in Verse”.
Eli, Barbara’s cat, has attended every meeting since the beginning of d4collective back in July 2010. He always checks in entering the room with a loud “Me Yoooowaa” to see if we are on schedule and if anyone can get him a piece of tuna or cheese. When asked if he would lend his name to the un-official mascot [the aforementioned flying pig], Eli nodded and asked for more cheese.
Pets can have the same “blood pressure reducing” effect as many gardens do. Lucky us.
