Open House

Today was the open house at the gardens. I am exhausted. Nice to meet some of you weblog readers!

Aunt Olla spent several hours out at the nursery on leave from the Fertile Hilton. She has no trouble finding people with whom to chat. Below, she talks with nursery employee Lyla.



Lyla catches me taking photos, and expresses her chagrin.


Pope Art



Last night, I performed at this art gallery in Terrace, MN, about thirty miles south of Alexandria in a beautiful lake region of Pope County.



The inside features a grand piano on the former altar. About twenty-five people attended, a typical group. They were a very interesting, literate bunch. We had no trouble finding common ground, both with music and monologue.
