Re: July - storms - Hot Springs

Donna - Glad the pond tour went well - sorry about the weather though.
We're 9" behind now on rain already for the year (when you only get 35",
that's a bunch). Drove through the most dreadful storm going to Hot
Springs yesterday, started about 5 minutes after I left Texas (sunny
here). Horrible.

But I made it and may I say, I wish you all someday have the great good
fortune to meet Zem and Jesse in person. They are such wise, witty, warm
and wonderful women, it's a pure pleasure to be in their company. The
Garvan Woodland Garden was awesome and yes we got pictures. I'm already
watering so my garden doesn't become a desert, naturally. It's even too
warm out there for Sugar today, but she doesn't have the responsibility
for or emotional investment in the gardens. So - I'm off to clambake
land (outside). Zem and Jesse thought it was hot in Hot Springs??? LOL -
y'all should be here!!

Later - Pam
