Miss Effie's Country Flowers and Garden Stuff...always a great place to be...
Betwixt these many regaling stories amongst rolling countryside, there is still a bit of teaching to be had.
There are but two classes left amongst my Midwestern visits, and I hope to see familiar and new faces amongst you, am looking forward to laughing and questions and cooking and beekeeping!
Yes indeedy! Here is what is left on the itinerary!
