. Sounds like a greta place!
John Hummer’s garden is really remarkable. If you are interested is possibly attending this open house, both Chris Upton and I have been there before. The photos
give you a taste of what the garden “displays.”

Subject: Plans for Oct. field day viewing at John's wetland............
Hello friends, associates, nature luvers......
I have tentatively planned as a day for field viewing the wetlands, October 15th of this year......whether or not this event takes place is dependent on how much of a
turn out I will have.......It is therefore imperative for those of you who are interested and plan on attending, to give me a positve email response no later than
Sept 1st of this year, so I can make a determination as to whether or not this event will be held. It's important that if you are a member of a botanical or
biologically oriented group you forward this email to your other members so that they might have the opportunity to come.....if you are not coming, it is not
necessary to indicate this to me, only if you plan to be here with certainty. Whether or not this event takes place will be decided on the number of positive
responses I receive by no later than Sept 1st, 2011. I am located in S. Caroline Co. Va. roughly midway between Richmond n Fredericksburg, Va. Just 3 mi from I-95 Ex.
104. This event is free of charge!!
Oct 15th is a Saturday, and the tour would begin around noontime..... n takes about 1-2 hrs. The environment is damp, n moisture tolerant footwear is highly
suggested.......The variety of wetland plants species is too numerous to mention here.....suffice it to say, if you love nature, you will enjoy the tour, bring a
camera, it will be worth your while!!
I will add pertinent info about this event in a follow-up email that will be sent out soon after the 1st of Sept. including whether or not the event will be
In the meantime enjoy some of the interesting nature photos I've taken recently in n around the wetlands........
