Re: Black Swallowtail Caterpillars/ First time here

Wish I could, Gene, but the calendar seems to be filling up already.
That's a busy time of year.  
If you ever find yourself in this part of the country, be sure to visit
Stonecrop Nursery in Cold Spring.  I'm sure it started as a rich man's
tax dodge - the owner is Frank Cabot, of the Massachusetts Cabots
who speak only to God - but it has become a really significant 
nursery of rock garden plants. Their early structures were huge
hypertufa troughs covered with all sorts of alpines and creeping
plants.  They have enlarged greatly since those days - twenty-five
or more years ago - and it's really worth the trip to see.

Well, Auralie
    If you can not talk your garden club into getting together for making 
hypertufa containers, then come on down for a visit this coming September 
and October. JoAn will be giving her classes here the very last of Sept. or 
early October. Only two class are scheduled right now, but more will be 
added if needed.
    I have a big itch to make some new tufa containers in rather large sizes 
and mix them with galvanized containers of various sizes and shapes from a 
watering trough to a foot tub... Place the arrangement up on the hill with a 
stone wall as the background near the entrance of the new greenhouse. Fill 
them with lots of trailing "stuff".
