Writer’s Void

Monrovia’s Brent Grunfeld talks, “Innovations for Small Spaces” this Saturday!

I’m suffering.  I’m having difficulty coming up with anything.  Some might refer to it as writer’s block, but this is worse.  I think I have writer’s void.  You see writer’s block assumes there is something there that simply cannot be accessed.  The mental floodgates have been closed off preventing the natural flow of information.  In my case, the gates are wide open.  Nothing is there.  I’ve been looking all morning.  Nothing.  Not a trickle.

This has happened before.  I write 51 articles a year, (I usually take off the week between Christmas and New Year’s) I almost always write the article the ‘day-of’ so that it can be as current and timely as possible.  That’s all well and good, unless you have writer’s void.  I know, I could talk about weather.  I could talk about the Great Nashville Flood of 2010; but the statute of limitations has run out on that topic.  I could talk about all of the new plants we have received this week from Monrovia.  It would probably be best if I simply said this:

Saturday, May 06 Bates Nursery & Garden Center is proud to host Brent Grunfeld from Monrovia Nursery. Brent will give a presentation on "Innovations for small spaces”. If you need ideas for creating a garden in challenging spaces (urban balconies and terraces), compact yards or if you just have a few gaps to fill in your landscaping, then this is the program for you!

Sessions are here at Bates Nursery & Garden Center at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm – but please note, the 1:00 pm session will be a "walk and talk tour" as Brent guides participants around the nursery.

These sessions are free, but space is limited.  To reserve your space, please sign up at the register, or by calling (615) 876-1014 or by e-mailing Anne: bates.nursery@icloud.com.

We have everything horticulturally you could possibly need.  Maybe it is more want, than need but that’s okay, whichever way it is, come on out; we’re here to help.
