The Gathering of Gardeners
Today was the fifth annual "Gathering of Gardeners" in Cottage Grove, Oregon. This is a small garden fair of food and plant venders along with crafts people selling their wares. It's held on the grounds of the Village Green Resort and Gardens. A couple of years ago we drove past this in our motor home and I remember looking down on the area from the freeway thinking it must be some kind of a re-enactment of a medival country fair. Marlene did some shopping in the craft area, but our main objective was to pick up some plants that we need to supplement our landscapping.
We found what we were looking for, sampled the Indian food and then loaded up the plane and headed for home. It was a gloomy day in the Willamette Valley. We flew through some rain showers and lots of smoke from the field burning, but landed safely just before the heavier rain started.
