Bonnie, cleaning pots in the fall saves so much time in the spring when all 
is crazy.   Acually we keep a bucket of bleach water in the garage all summer.  
 Seems I am always repotting or adding plants to a multi container which 
leaves a dirty pot to clean.
     I was in class all day last Thurs   & Fri for a quilting design class 
given by Gabrielle Swain from Texas.   I love the design classes because it all 
applys to quilts & gardens.   The class was an art quilt class using leaves. I 
used a tulip tree leaf for my design.   I enlarged my leaf to some bigger 
than 36" and used a portion of the leaf at an angle.   Someone said she blew up 
her leaf & the instructor quickly said 'no, no, we do not BLOW UP our leaves'.  
 Mon our Landscape Design Consultants and Garden Study Consultants had our 
bi-annual meeting.   Our speaker was an ISU Reiman Gardens designer and she 
spoke on design.   She said she often gives the presentation to interior design 
people. It was excellent.
     Tomarrow our MG garden committee (5) are going to the Iowa Arboretum to 
cut willow to make a willow arbor to be used in our Iowa State Fair garden 
next year.
     I often think I don't get as much done as I use to but then I think 
about the many things I am involved in and yes I do but time is such a premium.
          Yesterday and today was so hot!
