I met my hero today!
Pam Penick, author, garden designer, and blogger extraordinaire was at the San Antonio Garden Center today sharing an incredible presentation she put together about losing the lawn and gaining a waterwise landscape or beautiful garden. Her presentation was wonderful – Pam is such a great public speaker and she talks just like she writes. She shared a wealth of information, and it was all put together so well. If you ever have a chance to see her speak, take it! There she is signing my copy of her book for me! Such a cool moment! What an awesome day – I got to meet my hero – the woman responsible for so many positive changes in my garden, and my life the last few years.
If you have not purchased Pam’s book yet, Lawn Gone!, you really need to. It is not just regional information to Texas either, anyone and everyone…everywhere will benefit from reading this amazing book.
I think I will curl up after the kids are in bed tonight and read my signed book!

How great that you met your hero and weren’t dissapointed. I completely endorse digging up the lawn!

And there she is, signing away. Must have been a nice talk, even with the Death Star blazing down upon “all y’all”! It was a great book to read to be sure.
I enjoyed your plant selections too, David. :) -xericstyle
Heather! I am so glad I got to meet YOU too, and I am seriously blushing over your kind words here. Thank you so much for your generous compliments about my talk. I’m still kind of new at this, so I’m glad to know you enjoyed it! Hugs! Pam

Pam is definitely a gardening hero to me. I’ve learned so much just by following her blog. Glad that you got a chance to meet her.
