This post is as much a celebration for me as it is a way to reconnect with readers of Eastern Shore Gardener. I mailed my manuscript for Chesapeake Gardening & Landscaping to the publisher, the University of North Carolina Press, this afternoon! While I still have photo editing to do, and there is lots left to do before the manuscript becomes a book, today certainly is a milestone.
I am looking forward to being able to get back out in the garden with a clear conscience and free of the deadline pressures that I have been under for a year.
Harley helping with mis-printed pages. (Sorry this isn’t a better picture, but she was not really interested in holding the pages still.)
UPCOMING EVENT: I also wanted to mention that the botanical illustration class I attend is having a show at the Chestertown Library. The show will be up for the month of April, and we are hosting a reception this Friday, April 5, from 5 to 8 p.m.. I hope some of you can stop by and say “hello!”
Here it is: Three copies and 14 pounds.
