RE: Fwd: Squirrels

I tend to feel the same way, but then I enjoy visiting botanical gardens -
more than a few of which were private estates at one time, with rich people
who liked plants amassing amazing collections. But I don't think there will
be a tourist attraction in my neighborhood anytime soon, unless of course my
husband's christmas lights gathers a crowd.
