RE: re nursery interview/I'm back!

Yeah...it was cool there, but not freezing cold, but to look at poor Pam
you'd have thought the end of May felt more like the middle of December!
Poor girl...I thought I was intolerant of cold!

Lynda - I'm the worst. The joke at work is everyone knows when it
gets<br>over 80 because that's when Pam finally takes her jacket off.
But I'm<br>perfectly happy when it's 100, so I'm gardening in just the
right place.<br>Ask Melody & Jesse about last Memorial Day in Claremore
when I like to<br>have froze to death. I'm sure Melody thought I was
bonkers. Besides, the<br>heat is better for the rheumatoid arthritis
anyway. Heading up to<br>Jesse's Easter weekend so will have to leave
some winter duds out for<br>that
trip.<br><br><br><br>:-)<br><br>---------- Original Message

First, congratulations <br>>>> Ki

tty on your new job! That is so exciting. I know you'll be great
at<br>><br>>>> it.<br>>>><br>>>> I'm glad to see everyone is still here.
I read through most of the <br>>>> posts today already. Jim, it sounds
like your friend really made a <br>>>> great find,<br>>>let<br>>>> us
know what the paleontologist says.<br>>>><br>>>> I'm excited about
spring coming. It's in the low 70's here tonight. <br>>>>
I've<br>>>got<br>>>> the windows open. Pam sent me some great salvia
seeds that I'm going <br>>>> to start, and I have a greenhouse full of
plants just waiting to get <br>>>> outside. I'm waiting until the 15th
though. that's usually our last <br>>>> frost. I've got so little cover
in the yard I don't want to be <br>>>> scrambling to cover everything
after I move it out.<br>>>><br>>>> I start teaching classes at the
Garden Gate in the 13th. Apparently <br>>>> people are clambering for us
to start so we're off and running for <br>>>> the next 10 weeks or so.
I've got to learn all about herbs so if <br>>>> anyone has a
good<br>>>list<br>>>> out there for herbs and their practical uses that
would be great.<br>>>><br>>>> Glad to be back!<br>>>>
