As promised in my last post, this will be part two of my horticultural travelogue. Five days after returning from Tucson, I left for Vancouver, British Columbia. The weather was different. The plants were different.
The plant people were still the same – good people. But that weather. A little gray and drizzly, even real rain the one night. Thankfully the day we had devoted to touring was sunny and beautiful from start to finish.
Now. Why was I there? In 2013 the Perennial Plant Association (PPA) will hold its 31st national symposium in Vancouver. We were meeting to put together the program and then attend to general PPA business. It’s going to be a great program between the selection of speakers and the tours. The dates are July 21-27, 2013 with the three day core on the 23rd-25th. Some very exciting tours during, before, and after. Along with that, speakers with cutting-edge ideas addressing current needs of PPA members.
But let’s get more in travelogue mode.
