Charles' family reunion was held at one of our local parks on a wonderful lake this weekend. This part of the lake (a bit more yellow in the painting) reached out into blue waters ... calm and cool in the 95F degree weather. Children swam in the sandy beach front behind where I stood, and behind those trees, there were small boats and fishermen. Our pavillion was about 50 feet behind me - and even from this point along the waterfront, I could hear C and his family members playing music and entertaining us. It was quite an enjoyable time.
I have to brag on our students who worked with my assistant and me to develop a landscape design for the neighboring town. One of the students gave the presentation in front of the almost dozen townspeople - and they loved the design! We now get to install the plan ... the students will be paid for their first 'professional' work...and the Arboretum will receive a significant donation ....!
We continue our oral history gathering today. It's still raining and we've almost made up our rainfall shortage for the year -- yahoo!
Hope your day is terrific!
