THIS WILL BE THE LAST POST BEFORE THE SOIREE so the next time we talk will be at the gathering and I hope to see many of you here.  We have a lot of members who will not make it because they live in Australia, Africa, England, France, or in other distant locations and across America but a lot of us live in or close to Beaufort and I hope you will make the effort to attend as we always have a very pleasant afternoon together.    Your GPS will bring you here or at least to the line of balloons that will lead you to 70 QUIET COVE WAY. 

You will have to bring a chair, your drink of choice (I will have soda, water and ice), a little something for the food table and most importantly, insect repellent.   This year I am serving  Shrimp Jambalaya as a change from Frogmore Stew.  I guarantee that you will like it as my brother-in-law is coming down from Shelby, NC to make it.  (Glenda and I escaped Hurricane Matthew and went to Shelby where we sampled his Jambalaya – very good).

The weather is forecast to be bright and sunny and in the 70s so it should be a great afternoon and evening.

As for the results of this weeks “March freeze”, the citrus bloom survived so there should be a sent of orange blossoms in the air and the promise of a great citrus crop this fall.  Unfortunately, the Wisteria bloom came early and will be in its decline for the soiree but it did survive the freeze (31 degrees) .  I can’t say the same for the 30 plus 5 inch tomato seedlings.  They are  difficult to locate after withering and falling into the hay mulch.  I will just have to re-plant.  That is what I get for trying to get an early start.  The rest of the garden (except for the tender new leaves on the fig hedge) will show little damage.

SEE YOU NEXT SATURDAY.
