On January 10th we had Greg Graves, co-owner of the Old Goat Farm, come talk to us about designing garden rooms.
We left with a lot of valuable information, like:
• first deciding how you want to use the space
• creating mystery
• the differences between formal and informal
• creating structure
• decorating up the space
•  . . . and that flowers come last.

The meeting was held in the Eatonville Visitor’s Center and Helen Neighbor and Mayumi Jones, were hostess and co-hostess. Thank you for the warm coffee on a cold day and the wonderful desserts.

Deanna Simons Will be Missed

We are all in shock of the passing of Deanna Simons on  January 21, 2013. She was a wonderful woman, mother,  grandmother and great grandmother.

She loved big families and at the Christmas party this year told us she not only had seven children, but 28 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.

We may have known her as a gardener, but over the years she was (in addition to a mother) a deaconess, newspaper columnist, travel agent, and member of the city council.

Our hearts go out to her family. She will be deeply missed.
