A Message from the Head Gardener
It has come to my attention that SOME gardeners in the Houston area have received a disporportionate share of the area's rainfall over the last two days, leaving us high and dry out here in Katy. She Who Must Be Obeyed can murmur soothing platitudes all she wants ... they lose their effectiveness with me when she does so with hose in hand. I must respectfully insist that any further rainfall be distributed more evenly and believe that in fact it would be only fair if those areas who have already benefited from nature's bounty this week, agree to donate their predicted rainfall for the upcoming weekend to those of us who have not been so generously blessed. We will, of course, be willing to return the favor in future should a similar fate befall other areas.
