I just came home from Haywood County, NC where my daughter and I attended a fabulous plant swap at the Lazy Dog Ranch, home of Shannon (my childhood friend) and her husband Karl and various dogs, cats, chickens and ducks. I am not sure who had more fun...but if I had to guess I'd say my daughter had the time of her life running around, playing with dogs, feeding chickens and generally running wild. I also came home with fresh scones, eggs, and 6 perennials from the swap. I’d call that a successful visit.
Shannon and Karl's lovely cabin.
