Mike, I would be interested in the flower/ design class that you will be teaching this spring. I attended an interesting class in MT last year and found the way the design part was done to be interesting. Everyone was to bring in an photo of an area that they needed help with. We chose one and then look at the different needs for the area, problems etc. Then we all gave suggestions on what should be planted. The instructor wrote down the suggestions that could be used. We then could see what could be used etc. Was helpful on how to approach the problem and a way of going about solving it.
