I’m happy to say that I applied and was accepted to the UBC program. I have my student orientation tonight, and start the first course, “The History and Theory of Garden Design,” in March.
I’m so excited! This will be the first time I study something that’s just for me. The way I look at it, I can’t lose. I’m not going into it with the intention of becoming a garden designer (although, if I discover that I’m skilled at it and love doing it, why not?). I just want to be a more informed gardener and more informative garden writer, and to share what I’m learning with my blog readers. And it can’t hurt that my new garden will reap the benefits of my new-found knowledge, can it?
