The Naturalist's Notebook/Bike Garden is coming to Austin



Y'all know I love the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. I mean, just look at that lovely little Tejas garden vignette in the photo above. And what about that soothing well-spring tableau down below? What's not to love?

Well, lucky me, I get to bask in the excellentness of it all again when I participate in their Fall Festival and Plant Sale this coming Saturday, October 9th. I'll be there giving a public talk at 11 AM, and signing copies of How to Keep a Naturalist's Notebook afterward in the store until 2 PM.

The talk will be short, I promise. I have no idea yet what it will be about, but I'm thinking maybe something about drawing trees...

If you are free that Saturday, come on out. If you have a copy of How to Keep a Naturalist's Notebook, be sure to bring it and I'll make my mark. Or, if you don't already have one and want to buy a copy, I believe they are going to have some there for sale at the Center. But you don't have to bring or buy anything as far as I'm concerned. I'll just be happy to meet up with you and say "hey!"

Fair warning, though: Book or no book, you'll probably want to keep plenty of trunk space open in your car for the plants you'll be carting home.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a talk to figure out. See you Saturday!

  4. Do you ever come to Houston? I would be interested in sponsoring a visit/talk/book signing in the spring. If you are, email elizabeth@thepapershell.com and we can visit about it.

  5. EB--my brother used to live in Houston, but not anymore. Sometimes the CAST conference is there (this year, in fact) and that gives me a reason to go down there. But I could probably be persuaded to make a special trip even without other reasons to go.

  6. Most excellent, Susan. I'm going to post about your talk and other upcoming events tomorrow.

    I won't be able to make the Wildflower Center events this weekend, sadly. Too many family commitments. I'll be there in spirit!

  8. Hey! I've been using your book all the time since I got it :)

    The techniques you've got in there are handy for doing lightning sketches of key slides at talks I've been to too
