So I ran away for a weekend. To here.
Flower Camp restored me! I spent the weekend in the company of women talking about life, nature, food and family. I was surrounded by the beauty of nature and the beauty of Nancy's gardens and the incredible beauty of women who had so much to share of themselves.
We made so many arrangements that weekend and the collective creativity was infectious. Nancy had a way of making everyone feel so welcomed and so enjoyed sharing her retreat with us campers..
The food was prepared by a young local chef dedicated to using fresh local products. This is where I first learned of the concept of CSA farming. How grateful I am for that lesson.
I've run away to Flower Camp again since and was feeling the need stirring in me again lately.
Then came the email from Nancy this week. She is retiring from giving workshops after many happy years. I wish this generous and talented naturalist, gardener and writer all the best.
Looks like I am going to have to create my own garden sanctuary retreat...
Now all I need is the land to do so.
