A Visit to the Quarry Garden

We have been back and forth between Minnesota and Wisconsin the last 3 days. The temps this morning were in the low 70's which made me think I may have to stop and buy a sweater. I have been monitoring the temps back home (mornings begin at 86 and are 108 by mid-afternoon) and I wonder if I will have any plants left when I get back.

Well, Scarlet, I will think about that tomorrow because today....

my sweetie and I got to meet Karen and Carl and view their amazing Quarry Gardens. It was by far the best part of our whole trip.

Now for the teaser. I brought my laptop along on the trip but forgot the cable to my camera. So, the blog posts will happen when I get home. On the upside, I was asked to be "guest photographer" for Karen's blog. Carl has downloaded my photos onto their computer and Karen will be posting them in one of her future postings. I am hoping my camera skills will somehow do her garden justice. In the mean time I have been posting an occasional travel photo taken from my camera phone on Twitter via Twitpic.

Y'all stay cool in Texas. I am going to try to take some of this pretty weather home with us.

So cool you met Karen and Carl and saw their beautiful garden. I have 'known' Karen for awhile and would love to meet her in person, plus see her huge rock gardens.

Karen here, and believe me, the pleasure was ALL ours! We had a wonderful time visiting with you both and the time just flew by. The visit went way too fast. (We're savoring the fudge and eating it very slowly, yum!)

Carl & I both felt as if we'd known you for years, it was like visiting with old friends. Have a safe trip!

I have so much to post about now!

What a treat to get to see Karen and Carl's garden! I can imagine just walking around, amazed at all they have accomplished. I hope when you get home, things are fine in your garden.
