Mother Nature has lulled us into a feeling of eternal winter with successive storms bringing bitterly cold and snowy or icy conditions. Even for us optimists, remembering warmer weather is difficult when temps outdoors plummet below school zone speed limits. Few people are thinking about landscape design this time of year -- usually, that is. Usually, we get a few stragglers in January and February, then shift into warp-speed design mode March through June and September through November. This year is different, already. This year, a lot of new clients have been lining up for meetings in February. Could this be a sign of big changes ahead? Let's hope so. The more opportunities we have to share our message about sustainability, the better.
We still have one appointment left at 4pm on Monday, February 7th, and three appointments on Tuesday the 8th: 10am, 1pm and 4pm. Monday at 10am and 1pm, and all three appointments on Wednesday have been confirmed!
This Saturday, February 5th, 9-11am, we will be teaching a class about landscaping for and with wildlife at the Dallas Arboretum. Please visit their website to learn more about the class and to register: http://www.dallasarboretum.org/.
After this class and a few days of meetings, we will head south to Rockport for a few days and then return to DFW-Denton around March 1st. Exact dates TBA. Also in March, we will participate once again in City of Allen's Sustainable Landscape Series. Come hear us Saturday, March 12th, 10am to noon. Here is their flyer: http://www.cityofallen.org/SiteContent/56/documents/Flyer_Spring_2011(2).pdf
Looking forward to helping you restore your slice of Texas, y'all. Bring on spring!
