It took just 34 minutes from the time I parked the car.
My trip to KLRU in Austin to appear on Central Texas Gardener and promote our upcoming San Antonio Open Days Tour for the Garden Conservancy went so quickly. My first time in a TV studio so I was more than a bit unsure. Meeting Tom Spencer and working with producer Linda Lehmusvirta was awesome and the crew was great to work with.
Put on the mic, a few other prep items were checked and then Tom and I talked about the six gardens featured on the October 14th tour. The amazing thing is that when we were wrapping up and Linda reappeared to say the interview went well, I thought "wait, those cameras were on!?"
They are that good at what they do.
I truly appreciated the opportunity to promote the tour, to get the word out and help raise money for the Garden Conservancy and for Gardening Volunteers of South Texas to continue our work.
Special thanks to my friend Linda Peterson for her notes of encouragement which made me smile this week. Linda's garden will be on the tour and I can't wait for everyone to see it.
Thanks to my friends at Central Texas Gardener for an experience I will never forget.
