A conference in the garden with Sydney

My friend Sydney Plum and I are collaborating on a book together, and every Friday we are supposed to get together via our cell phones for a conference. Actually, we are supposed to be Skyping, but I just haven't had the time to sit down and figure out how to do it, so we talk to each other the old-fashioned way.

I begged off last Friday, though, because I simply had too many other pressing deadlines, and so Sydney and I agreed to postpone the meeting until this morning. Well, it's a beautiful autumn day, and while I was out in the back garden doing my usual morning clean up (we have dogs--need I say more about this?), I thought, "I need to have my conference out here." After all, didn't I create this space for the express purpose of visiting with my friends?

So Sydney, in lieu of Skyping, here is what you would see while we chat about our book:

    1. Yes, but what we really need to work on is a Texas garden bloggers meet-up!

  2. Nice. I am envious of the meeting environment.

    It is now growing too cold to sit out in the yard on all but the sunniest, non-windy days (at least without bundling up to the extreme or having a fire).

    We are finally starting to get a little rain, but need much more. Drought has been upon us all year (despite the "rain event"/major flooding in June).

    1. Our autumns are the reward for our summers.

      I hope you get some good rain and snow this year--you all need it.

  3. Forget the conference, let's have a party at Susan's! No, I take that back, it's such a lovely contemplative setting, a party would be too noisy, let's have afternoon tea in the garden on a beautiful fall day.

  4. Susan, You've created a charming and comfortable space to visit with friends. I'm thinking how tasty a grilled pizza with a side of good conversation would be out there...
