Re: Limestone walkway

Donna, Ceres,
Oh no, I meant my garden.  I've never done the qstns either, though, because
they always have plenty of MGs who want to do it, they don't need me.
Apparently there is some big dinner and private tour for all the volunteers
the night before, so they have lots of takers.

Ah, but my garden...couldn't do it.  Whenever it has been on this end of
town I've always had one big bed or another that's in reorganization phase -
a total mess.  But even if that weren't the case, these people delight in
design; I'm a collector and there really is no design.  The layout would be
dangerous for older persons and I don't think insurance would cover an
accident.  Then there is the parking.  Almost impossible around here and
during this tour, I'd say there are easily 50-100 cars at a time at each
location.  Then the part about the damage to lawn of a couple of 1000 people
coming through here, and as mentioned before, some valuable plants, I'd
prefer unscrupulous people not know about.  And if that's not enough
reasons, there's the pride factor.  Not allowed.  Something terrible would
happen if I exhibited pride of that magnitude in my garden.

There's plenty of other, much better gardens for people to tour.
