You know, I've been all over that site and I can't seem to find a LOCATION for where the event is taking place. *Blush*

I'm guessing it's at the Sheraton, which is the hotel they're offering special room rates at?

Is anyone here from Cubits going to the convention? My husband and I will be there (not registered, but going to the public events) and would love to meet with anyone from Cubits or DG. :)

Lovely! I didn't go on the bus tour, but I did visit a couple of the open gardens. I'll post photos.

Keith said this terrace belongs to his neighbor, but that his neighbor didn't mind him planting in it. I wouldn't mind, either! Hilarious!

He commented, "I'm taking over the neighborhood."

A nice view of the terraced yard. I'm not sure I remember this correctly, but I think Keith said it was 3+ acres.

The pond. Hosta gardens in the background (they wrap around the pond and meander further back.)

The waterfall, with ferns and ligularia. There's a nice patio area off to the right.
