In November I wrote about an idea I had for a business here in the Northwest called, Rain Gardens.
This was my idea:
Rain Gardens ~
a nursery, community garden, meeting place, bookstore, espresso stand/cafe, gift shop designed to be used in the rain. It would include: indoor areas, outdoor areas, covered patios, rain barrels, rain gardens, container gardens. It would be a place where my friend and I would love to spend time during the winter, spring, even in June. Space to plan, test, research, garden, and of course - shop.
After posting about the idea here on the blog, I made a "secret board" on Pinterest - they had just offered this option. I wanted to use it to gather ideas that celebrated rain, to create a board that visualized this place. But, I didn't get very far with it. One reason is the secret boards are located at the bottom of the screen, so I rarely saw it. Another reason, I was having to do searches for rain related items. Unlike all my other boards I was working at finding things.
I realized that I won't open Rain Gardens here and that there was no point in having that board be secret. This board is called APF Rain gardens. Hopefully it will not be confusing as I have another board literally about rain gardens.
There's always a link to my Pinterest page at the top right of my web page (red circle with a P in the center). Here's the link, just to make it easier: http://pinterest.com/vhogan2/apf-rain-gardens.
