Re: Bird nest


Raccoons and possums are not threatened by cats. No, I think they resided in
a nearby area that was the back of a nursery - somewhat wooded and with a
ditch running through it.  The new owners of the nursery cleaned up the
whole area.  I think that's why they are gone.

Yes it seems I'm always involved in plant sales.  I have my own in April and
the MGs have one in May, one in June, and one in Sept.  May is the big one.
June is somewhat smaller and combined with a 'Garden Walk' - sort of open
house for the Display Gardens - music, festivities, food, lectures, dorr
prizes, etc.  These are not like what Ceres has; much smaller. May brought
in arecord $3500, this one might bring $2500.  And then there are the bulb
sales in July and Oct - I'm putting those together now.
