RE: Garden Club Talk

Zem, I too wish I could have been there to hear you speak!!!  As a
youngster, my parents took me to see Jamestown so I could understand that
history isn't just words in a book.  I loved the little gardens I saw
(kitchen gardens, mostly) and learning more about them would have been
wonderful.  I think maybe you just needed a confidence boost.  You were
probably too nervous your first time out and more relaxed this time.   Do
you have a script outline you could share?

Subject: [CHAT] Garden Club Talk

Today I spoke to a garden club in Jackson, TN.  I'm happy to report it went
very well.  The subject, on of my favorites, was 'Colonial Gardening.'  This
fall commences the 400th anniversary of the settlement of Jamestown Colony,
and the Garden Clubs of Virginia have planned tours of about 250 gardens
along with some of the historic plantations along the James River.  I really
like American history, and I've found all sorts of interesting facts about
our forebears.  My talk includes kitchen gardens as well as ornamental
Just had to share since this was only my second time to speak to a club, and
the first time nearly everybody fell asleep! <LOL> Hope this means I'm
getting better at it.
