30 Day Challenge ~ Thanksgiving ~ Day 18

One of the best things about being part of the 2012 Travis County Master Gardener class is the camaraderie among the interns.  During the ten week course, I met a bunch of new friends who love to talk dirt!  

A really thoughtful intern brought little cups of bluebonnet seedlings for the class on the last day.  
He also brought seeds to exchange.  I'm looking forward to sowing seeds of Evening Sun
sunflowers and Purple Ruffle basil.  

Today I'm thankful for all of the wonderful people I met during the Master Gardener training 
and I'm really grateful to be a Master Gardener intern!


  1. How fun! I love sunflowers and am interested to see your Evening Suns. Congrats on you Master Gardener work!

  2. I love sunflowers...can't wait to see the evening sun and also the purple ruffle basil.
    Congrats Master Gardener!!

  3. How thoughtful.
    It'll be interesting to see the sunflowers.
    Congrats on getting you Master Gardener internship moving along.

  4. And I'm thankful to have met some of you wonderful interns when I taught your class in Oct! Sounds like a great group to become MG's with.

  5. Congratulations on your accomplishment! You will find Master Gardening to be a very rewarding experience. I became a MG almost 5 years ago, and I have made some dear friends of like minded gardeners. In fact we named our little study group of seven women "The Soil Sisters"... the inspiration for the title of my blog!

  6. Congratulations! I loved the MG course and also had a great intern class. Being a MG is so rewarding in so many ways. I am sure you are looking forward to completing your hours now!

  7. My daughter leaves for college in less than 2 yrs and I'm going to start my Master Gardener classes then. I'm already excited! I loved your response to my Elvis post. I had a feeling you'd appreciate what I was trying to say. :o)

  8. Hi Cat! What a lovely post - and what a great thing to do. Congrats and enjoy ...

  9. Congrats on becoming an MG!! The best part about it is that you are always learning something new and growing as a gardener, lots of great people involved, too. I got gobs of bluebonnet seeds from a neighbor friend of mine, so I'm excited to see if I get any germinating this fall/winter. My larkspur and poppies are already germinating. We haven't even had winter yet and I'm already excited about spring!

"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
