Garden workshop June 27

The garden workshop is on, and there is still lots of room left. Please tell your friends, if know someone who wants to write, someone who would benefit from a day in the most beautiful garden on earth, if I say so myself, doing something interesting and creative. Plus lunch.

Or consider it yourself. All welcome. Please let me know.
Just got an email from one of my Ryerson students, who wrote, “It is wonderful to be able to share everyone’s writing, and you have fostered a very warm, accepting and fun learning environment.”

Here’s a picture of warm, accepting, fun Hilda Homemaker in her garden. (For my home class on Thursday, I dressed as Donna Reid with a martini glass. Too bad you can’t see the pearls.)
