Another year,another show

Well, here we are at the freezing cold beginning of 2017.
We don’t know about you, but many of us here in the Triangle area of North Carolina have been dealing with a bit of cabin fever over the last couple of days with the low temp on Sunday being in the teens and a single digit was the low very early on Monday morning.It is expected to warm up considerably by the end of the week and , meanwhile, Amelia and I are busy planning the Spring Open Garden Show as well as some new workshops for this spring and summer.

Along with our always popular hypertufa trough workshops Lasting Impressions will be offering a couple of new classes in 2017 including an opportunity for participants to create a concrete garden orb approximately 14″ in diameter to place in that perfect spot in their own garden.

Our workshops for 2017 are as follows:

March 25th 9am to noon-Hypertufa Workshop $85

March 25th 1pm to 3pm-Concrete Garden Orb Workshop $100

June 3rd 9am to noon-Hypertufa Workshop $85
