Wednesday night was not only the Henderson Art Project's HeART auction, but also the very important Forest Hills General Meeting at Times Ten Cellar. Andie and I left the HeART function in time for the meeting.
Nice crowd. Our President Leon conducted a short and sweet meeting so we would have time to hear Steve Houser and Laura talk about trees, our trees.
Steve opened by saying he was delighted to be speaking to the neighborhood of FOREST Hills. Talk about preaching to the choir. Steve had a captive tree hugger audience. We realized we could keep them their all night and they're too nice for that. Our trees bring all of us together. One of my favorite sayings to scream to the developers who use to tear down homes and our beautiful trees was, "What do you not understand about the FOREST in Forest Hills?" I love being a member in good standing of this radical group.

Several White Rock Lake Garden and Artisans Tour artists were represented at the Henderson Art Project's HeArt benefit on Dragon Street last night. Cynthia Daniel contributed one of her beautiful wheel barrow tree flowers. These look spectacular in our big hundred year old trees. Come to the White Rock Lake Garden and Artisans' Tour where she will be displaying her spectacular pieces in the beautiful Moran garden - 8911 San Benito.
Mrs. Moran is a master gardener.

Tonight is the reason I work hard on getting the word out for the White Rock Lake Garden & Artisans' Tour. My treat is an invitation to - DRUMROLL - the Mason's crawfish boil. And tonight excellent is too small a word. Wonderful hosts, super party, great people, but the crawfish? Oh, the two cooks said they weren't Cajun, but I don't believe a word. I'm telling you these people know how to cook crawfish - gotta have random Cajun somewhere there.
And it's Donna's birthday - Happy Birthday, Donna!
May I describe the little critters? Big, juicy, perfectly spiced, big claws, sweet tails and the heads? So many people don't eat the heads, just more for little lucky me. I'll be taking my third cholestrol pill in a few minutes.
Come to the Garden Tour, Sunday, May 23, from 11:00 tgo 5:00.
As usual, it's all about me - make me worthy of Media Czar for the Garden Tour - and I might get invited to next year's party.
