My Dearest Pat,

You know that you do, indeed, have all of my support in your ongoing
to overcome many years of wayward training, and I am just simply amazed
at the progress that you have achieved in the last few months.
You are even allowing the indoor plants to grow in dirt!!
Who would ever have imagined this just a few short months ago?
Your determination and growing zeal for gardening is just the
the most wonderful thing!

Yours truly,

Coastal NC--where we are up in the 70's today and the verbena and Bradford
are just beginning to bloom!
