My blog was hacked. Thankfully, a friend notified me so my husband could work with our internet service provider to delete foul, disgusting images and columns of comments in French. Also removed were two years of posts due to my not knowing—or forgetting—to back up my posts. Believe me, I am wiser now.

Meanwhile, let’s go forward to the next event about which I’m all perked up. It is Paul and Susan Damon’s 10th garden tour and art sale at their dazzling, pollinator-friendly garden and home. Dates are Friday, July 14, from 5–8 p.m., and Saturday, July 15, from 11 a.m– 5 p.m. Their address is 355 Cleveland Avenue North in St. Paul, Minnesota. Their 1920’s bungalow is located just slightly east and north of the Lake Street bridge that crosses the mighty Mississippi River.

Paul’s compelling, mostly landscape paintings will beckon you from their posts throughout their home. Susan will lead you through an impressive and artistic array of native plants in their bountiful garden that was designated as a Monarch Waystation more than 20 years ago. My original nature prints and note cards will be for sale in the cool shadow of Damon’s garage where you can also print a plant and take the print home to frame, or proclaim as refrigerator art!

Here’s a quote from Paul and Susan’s postcard about the art sale and garden tour: “Dogs welcome. Your family and friends, too. Come and help us celebrate our tenth year.” Please stop by!
