I’m going home…

Not for good, don’t get excited, but my next visit to Kilbourne Grove is about to start.

Of course, I am very excited. I did not expect to be visiting this early in the year, thought it would be mid September till end of October, but Ian has a conference at work, so our trip has been moved forward.

This might put a bit of a damper on my bulb planting. Since spring is the time I see the most ‘stuff’ in bloom, and bulbs are my fav plant category, I had planned to plant another couple of thousand, tee hee. But, the mail order companies that I usually purchase from cannot guarantee getting them to me in time, so that plan has changed. But I am going to purchase ‘off the shelf’, just not as many as it will be pricier, and the selection not as good. Hopefully next year, I will be at KG in October and the bulb binge will continue. The good, (very good) news is I shall get to see some flowers blooming, looking forward to that, not to mention the weeding…

I might be able to visit the library and write a post occasionally, otherwise I shall return in October, with all the news…

    Great you are coming ‘home’ to see your garden. By the title, I thought it was for good.

    That’s great news even though the plan for planting bulbs will change. But you will be here for the trees to start turning in Owen Sound, the excitement of the kids going back to school and corn season!!!! Nothing like Ontario corn on a late summer day. Enjoy your time back home – hope you get to visit lots of your Canadian gardening friends

    Welcome home dearheart! You really must see if you can plan a daytrip to Fergus while you are back. I just spent the day stocking the benches with lots of new and exciting plants to usher in the late summer garden season~!

    I’m so happy for you! It’s nice that the fall temporary return is happening early this year to help ease the transition. I looked back to see that you moved there December 1st, so you are at least 3/4 of the way through your first year. Amazing. Enjoy your time at home. I’ll miss you but don’t worry your pretty little head about the blog – think of all the fun memories you’ll be re-living as you post about your fall at Kilbourne Grove in the dead of winter in Barbados…

    Wondering where exactly Kilbourne Grove is, clearly not North London. Have fun.
