Re: head count


Ceres,
As I read I became excited for you and then realized you were staying put.
But that's good too.  I've read many messages about your wonderful garden
and can understand why you wouldn't want to leave it.  Even with all the
money in the world, I would not want a garden that someone else created.  My
sweat - and a little blood, too - is in my garden.  Everything here, I did.
Mine's not as beautiful as those in the magazines - no one wants to come
photograph mine for publication as they do yours  - but it's mine and I
would never want to leave it behind.  If you've realized you don't want to
do it over again somewhere else, just stay put .  Relax and enjoy it.  You
deserve it.

Kitty
