Re: Sunken Gardens

I remember you mentioning that before.  I find that appalling.  Why wouldn't
they just write the name down?  We've had no trouble having our markers
taken, though we have had a few plants taken.  The Hort Ed now is pressing
the idea of 'theming' our gardens - which means statuary.  The Patio garden
has been doing this with an Alice in Wonderland Theme.  On Garden Walk Days
they hold a Tea Party and sometimes have a rabbit for kids to pet.  So far
no one has walked off with the AiW statuary, but it could happen.  I am in
the 'Propagation' Group, which I prefer to call by its original name of
'Nursery' (because we do very little propagation, 95% is small plants
brought in and grown on in our nursery beds for sale).  I've thought about
using Nursery Rhymes for our 6 beds.  I'd like to lend my 18 inch turn of
the century (19th to 20th) style cat and his fiddle to one of the beds, but
I'm afraid someone would walk off with it.
