Thank you, Franklin County Garden Club, for an enjoyable afternoon! I presented a program on nature journaling that was graciously received by the members of the club. I gave each a piece of paper and asked them to “journal” about a good gardening/garden memory and a person who’s part of that memory. Members then illustrated their pages with drawings, stamped images, and copies of a garden poem. I showed some of my journal pages, including this reflection on my afternoon at Mingo Swamp earlier this week. Pleasant conversation; yummy refreshments — it was a good day!
